Can Tho might be the Mekong Delta's biggest city at about one million residents, but get into the backwaters and you'd never guess. Life on the river seems a million miles away as you sit in quiet river banks and watch the world literally float by.
Between the fields that line the river, you'll find @nguyenshack, a beautiful set of bungalows run by darling couple Theu and Maxime. Theu built the homestay some years back before Maxime showed up and fell in love with the area, and the host. He soon scraped his plans for a round the world trip in favour of following his heart. The rest plays out like a travel fantasy as the two, now married, built a life and a few more shacks together. 😊
