Join Group Tour to Mekong Delta

The space
The Mekong Delta in the Far South of Vietnam is a flat country, never more than a few feet above water level. The seven major mouths of the River and dozens of major canals (not to mention sloughs and cutoffs) mean that nowhere is far from the water and the traditional wooden boats, modern Motor Fishing Vessels and small craft that work the waterways. Interestingly, it is often far into the countryside before you find a bridge too low to pass ocean–going boats. So besides the river boats, you see large ocean-going vessels far from the sea.

In all that water, there is a tremendous variety of boats working: most of them still traditionally built wooden boats. The smallest are still propelled by hand using oars or paddles, and many use a combination. They have small long-tailed outboards for use on the open river but pick up and swing the propeller on board and shift to a pair of oars to work in close quarters. Amongst the engine powered boats there is every sort of power plant, from little air cooled gas engines to quite powerful diesels. A great many of them are mounted as long-tailed outboards, though some of the largest freight boats are inboard powered, with conventional installations.

Dear Valued Guests, Thank you very much for choosing our little home. We do hope that you will have the great time here. My name is Luan, I have worked for more than 10 years as a local guide, and I travelled in many places especially in Vietnam. My biggest dream is to travel all over the world and be able to share my great knowledge about Vietnam. With my family, we decided to support each other and open Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay (2011) and now a new one: Authentic Hanoi Homestay. My main objectives were to include what the travelers want the most which is experiencing the authentic Vietnamese life and exploring local activities. Today, I consider that the authentic Vietnamese life has become quite rare. Whenever or wherever you travel you all want discover new customs and learn more about a culture. So this inspired me to the host and share my home with the travelers from all over the world.  In order to offer a great service, our team: Mr Huy (Local Tour Guide) and Miss Thuy (young assistant) will help us to manage HANOI OLD QUARTER HOMESTAY & Mr Kevin & Mr Hoan (Experienced Tour Guide) will take care AUTHENTIC HANOI HOMESTAY. === ACCOMODATION == My home is located in the Old quarter, the heart of Hanoi, surrounded by good restaurants and shops, in green, quiet streets within walking distance of Hoan Kiem Lake which is the perfect environment to enjoy your holidays. The cozy rooms are lovely decorated with air-conditioning. Some of the rooms have a balcony with a nice view of the Old Quarter streets. The others rooms are located in the back of the building, which guarantees you a relaxing and quiet night. === EXTRAS === - Pick up service from and to the airport. - Renting or buying motorbike. - Laundry. - Family dinner. - Local Tour Arrangements. Just contacting us to get the best trips and vacations in Vietnam Best regards Luan
