The perfect trip: Vietnam
Where to stay and eat
A popular option for travellers in the Mekong Delta, homestays see guests staying with local families and helping them cook dinner. One of the best is the Hung family homestay, close to Can Tho, which offers hearty food and simple bungalows set along a quiet riverbank. Excursions to the floating market nearby at Cai Rang are also available (00 84 90 384 9881; stay from £7 per person, including dinner, excursion £5 per person).
