beautiful and relaxing but out of the way

scenery, big breakfast, friendly staff
The Nguyen Shack was a lovely and relaxing place to spend a few nights in Can Tho. The bountiful breakfast with generous hours (7-12!) was particularly nice. The staff was kind enough to give us a room upgrade, as one of the bungalows was empty when we arrived. The room had a beautiful view of the waterway and fields. A few drawbacks - because the Shack is far outside of the main town, you are reliant upon their tours for sightseeing and food for dinner. The meals are reasonable, but the tours are definitely more expensive than you could find elsewhere ($12 per person for morning 2 1/2 hours to the floating and land market, $10 per person for afternoon cycling tour, $6 per person for evening sunset cruise). The taxi to the town is about 160k dong. The staff were extremely kind to us when we were there, and they maintain a jovial atmosphere in the main eating area, where cats and travellers and dogs and staff all mingle for hours in the evening.

My stay at the Nguyen Shack was fantastic. Barring the mosquitoes at night, I actually don't have much to pick on them for. There isn't any air conditioning in the lodges, but the natural breeze and electric fans should do the trick for you. The tours provided at the shack was authentic and interesting too. Mosquito nets are provided if you are indeed worried about the mosquitoes.
