Hi, Two of us will be in Vietnam in 3 weeks’ time. We have 5 full days in HCM before heading to East and North for 2 more weeks. While in HCM, we want to visit Mekong Delta to experience the river/canals and floating markets for 2 days 1 night.
In planning our Mekong Delta side trip, I came across cities My Tho, Ben Tre, Vinh Long and Can Tho and some island names. What are the “must” visit places and more importantly the passable tourist traps? Well, we are tourists and suppose to do what the tourists should do. But we don’t want to go to man-made spots that are meaningless.
We definitely want to see the authentic Mekong and the floating markets (hopefully we can do two markets: Cai Rang and one more)
I read both positive and negative reviews on Home Stay and I can't find reviews on them. Are there any Home Stay that offers room with ensuite bathroom? We are older adults and don’t want to go outside of the house or share bathroom with others.
Appreciate your thoughts and advice.
