Mekong Delta Vietnam

The Mekong Delta (Nine Dragon river delta) is the region in southwestern Vietnam. The West of Vietnam is known as the image of the deep blue river, an open space, pure water, green trees, and luxuriant fruit gardens. Away from the noisy and bustling city, down to the South to enjoy fresh air, tourist will find the soothing and refreshing...

A visit to the Mekong Delta is so memorable because of the region’s diversity. Everyday scenes include children riding on the backs of water buffalo or cycling to school through country lanes clad in white Ao Dai; rice workers stooping in a sea of emerald; market vendors grinning behind stacks of fruit; bright yellow incense sticks drying at the roadside; flocks of storks circling over a sanctuary at dusk; Khmer monks walking mindfully in the shadow of pastel pagodas; locals scampering over monkey bridges or rowing boats on the delta’s maze of channels.

The heart of the Mekong Delta is Can Tho Province, from where it is possible to reach the remotest confines of the delta, South towards the mangroves and the South East Asia Sea, North towards Chau Doc, or West towards the Phu Quoc Island
