Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta

To say the Mekong Delta is ‘green’ is a bit of an understatement. Consisting of countless, crisscrossing waterways, the lushness and abundance of the area is astounding – a patchwork of rice paddies, orchards, palm trees, sugar cane plantations and vegetable fields. Floating through the delta, the water is always a hive of activity, be it a floating market - boats plying the water piled high with local produce, fishermen angling for their daily catch, locals commuting to and from their villages or water buffalo wallowing in the shallows. Away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, the delta offers an amazing natural and tranquil retreat, and is a delightful place to explore.
