Welcome to Papaya Homestay Sa Dec

Our Property

Our river-front homestay is located conveniently between Sa Dec and Vinh Long, with easy access by bus or private transport from Ho Chi Minh City, and all major towns in the Mekong. The property contains many fruit trees and two ponds with beautiful purple lilies competing for space with our ducks. 


To ensure you enjoy a rich Mekong experience, we offer a range of activities, including our signature morning boat tour, where we cruise the rivers to a bustling local market, then visit our family fruit and fish farm, before enjoying a delicious early lunch including trying local snacks picked up from the market. 

Delicious Local Food

Eating delicious food is at the heart of your visit to Papaya Homestay Sa Dec. From a free filling breakfast that runs from 7am to Noon, a light and fresh lunch menu, through to a nightly shared family meal where guests and host sit down to eat a wide variety of classic Vietnamese dishes including Mekong Delta specialties and vegetarian options.
