Experience waterway life just 30 minutes from downtown Saigon at this riverside resort in Binh Chanh District.

Just a 30-minute drive from downtown Ho Chi Minh City, eight wooden cottages with thatched roofs stand humbly in the middle of a pond where you can see lotus flowers, water lilies and mangrove palms.


Connected by wooden bridges, these cottages are a world apart from city life.


But they are still well-equipped with all your home comforts.


Want some cool fresh air and greenery? Just open the window.


Row a boat through the mangrove palms during, take a cooking class and visit the fruit and vegetable gardens nearby.


Then enjoy a barbecue in the evening.


The cost is VND1.5 million ($66) per night for a small cottage for two, and VND1.7 million ($75) for a bigger cottage.
