Homestay of a Former Viet Cong Fighter


The Mekong Delta is a beautiful area in the south of Vietnam. It is a maze of rivers that crisscross the landscape like arteries and where houses and markets float. The way of life is peaceful, green with many rice paddies and locals riding their boats.

Here, in this area, is the house of Mr. Ba Linh, who was a fighter in wartime. He opened his home to share the Mekong lifestyle with travelers. Unfortunately, he passed away last year, but his family wants to keep his tradition of welcoming travelers alive.

You have the chance to get a peek into local life and join in some of their daily activities like rice farming, taking care of their garden where they have some beautiful gourd trees, catching fish from the canal, or relax in one of the hammocks that Mr. Linh has put. In the evening, you can enjoy a delicious Vietnamese home-cooked meal prepared by Mr. Linh’s wife.

Your room is basic with a mattress, mosquito net, and fan.
The following day you will enjoy a delicious breakfast with fresh fruits, after which you have the chance to hop on a bike and explore the area.

After lunch, you will be dropped off at the bus station to return to Ho Chi Minh City.

About Me

I live in Ho Chi Minh City in the South of Vietnam. I have been a tour guide around Vietnam since 2001 and love this job very much as we have so many beautiful towns and lovely local culture to show you. However, I have two children, and I think it’s time to limit my passion and have more time with them. That’s why now I am a local guide only in Ho Chi Minh City. I am glad to be your travel mate around.
