Đinh Thu homestay enjoys views over the lake, which offers a lot of activities when the weekly floating market arrives.
Visitors can reach Đinh Thu homestay on road or by boat, which provides a very scenic and relaxing experience. Đinh Thu homestay can host up to 10 people. Ms. Mông and her son have found it challenging but very enjoyable to welcome visitors staying at their house. Since the initial launch, Đinh Thu has homestay has received numbers of groups of visitors, which has provided a much needed improvement in the family income.
Like many other households in Da Bia village, the Đinh Thu family relies heavily on farming, bamboo planting and occasionally fishing. Ms. Mông used to work on the farm while her husband spent most of his time in the forest planting bamboo and fishing in the lake. However, their income from these activities was not enough to cover their daily living costs.
If things go well, we will expand our house and build another toilet and bathroom to accommodate more guests. We also want to grow our own vegetables and simple food ingredients to be used in the food we serve visitors.” noted Ms. Mông.
