The Mekong Delta is the bottom half of Vietnam's two rice baskets, the other being the Red River Delta in the North. This vast delta is formed by the deposition of the multiple tentacles and tributaries of the mighty Mekong River which has its origin in the Tibetan highland plateau 2,800 miles away.
This trip is truly an opportunity to participate in the everyday life of the Mekong Delta. We travel through beautiful areas of lush fruit orchard, endless paddy fields, lively floating market and busy canals.
