Would I recommend staying here? Yes

 

 

One of the most beloved destinations in Vietnam: Hoi An. If you are planning to visit and don’t have a place to stay yet; I recommend Cam Chau Homestay.

 

Cam Chau Homestay is an organization with 14 different families. The place we stayed provided us a lock out place with a bedroom and a bathroom. It was simple and clean.

 

The family members and the managers were very nice. They made us felt like guests who are staying in their house. Which was true, but you know what I mean. We could ask any information about the town and the transportation to them. When we had to go to Da Nang for a day, Mr. Hoa let us park our bikes at his house near the bus station. They took care us closely. I had a lot of questions regarding my visa situation, and Mr. Vinh and Mr. Hoa kindly helped me figured out what to do.

 

 

 

While I was gone, Stephen had a dinner with a family that celebrated a full moon. It was an interesting cultural experience, as I’ve heard. I caught up from the pictures and the stories. They made a whole dinner for everyone, and they made a special desert and a table for the ceremony. They next morning when I came back, the host dad explained the ceremony to me. It was a great experience.

 

 

The breakfast was great every morning with a cup of coffee – hot or cold. It prepared by the host mum. It was a heartfelt meal, everyday. They had a menu; from a simple toast to Vietnamese noodle soup. The omelet and baguette was my favourite.

 

 

The location is little bit out of the centre, but I especially liked the point. Hoi An is a very touristy place; busy with travelers, vendors, and traffic. It was hard to find the ‘real life’ in the centre of the city. But it was a nice bike ride from our place to city, and had a chance to glance at the real life of the townspeople.
