Vinh Long: Cuu Long B Hotel 3 star accommodation for Mekong Delta Homestay 2 Days
The Mekong Delta Travel Guide contains a lot of useful and exciting information about the unique and diverse area of the Mekong delta.
Located well inside in Vietnam’s beautiful Mekong Delta, Vinh Long is around 84 miles (136km) southwest of Ho Chi Minh City. Vinh Long is a lovely place to stay in for a few days however it is a working town rather than a tourist destination so Vih Long does not get many visitors – in fact you might be lucky (or unlucky) to spot a tourist.
Vinh Long contributes to the nation’s history as part of the historic settlement of the Mekong River Delta as Vietnam expanded southward in the 18th and 19th centuries. A large part of its recent past has either been lost or poorly documented and thus, invisible to tourists, and to an extent, even ordinary town people, most of the points of interest sit in a small area in the northeast corner, where the town is bordered by the Co Chien River to the north and a wide canal to the east and it is from here that the boat trips to Cai Be floating market and the island homestays depart
The hotel proposes 45 rooms modern and comfortable,including suite and standard rooms.
