Welcome to Mekong Delta
The “rice bowl” of Vietnam
Often dubbed the “rice bowl” of Vietnam, this 39,000-square-kilometre labyrinth of waterways remains one of the most densely populated parts of the country. About four hours’ drive from the city, it’s another world, where markets, villages and schools float on sprawling, life-sustaining estuaries. From here you can even make your way over to Cambodia by the Mekong river.
Cruising through the lush labyrinth of palm-fringed channels, rivers, and islands of the Mekong Delta offers a fascinating glimpse into the way of life of the people who depend on this fragile waterway for their survival. You also visit to local villages, farms, and factories.
