Away from the day-tripping groups that you’ll encounter elsewhere in the Mekong Delta, the Mango Home Riverside is a welcome escape into the countryside. Situated in a quiet village on the bend of the Ben Tre River, you would be excused for doubting that Saigon is only a few hours drive from this serene, friendly slice of rural life.
Rooms are simple but incredibly spacious, with large comfortable beds and generously sized en-suite bathrooms, all set within picturesque tropical gardens. Not that you’ll want to dwell in your bed for too long – even when you’re not out exploring the countryside – with it’s rice fields, coconut farms and welcoming villages – you will want to be sat on the riverfront enjoying the spectacular views, or cooling off in the pool.
Ideal for anyone looking to experience the relaxing pace of this famed region of Vietnam, while also having the opportunity to explore the myriad waterways and winding roads by bike, boat or boot.
This lodge is just as perfect for those wishing to relax with a glass of wine and a good book, as for those who would prefer to head off on a long bicycle ride, with nothing but a simple map and a sense of adventure… even if those people are travelling together!
