Mekong Delta travel infomation

The Mekong delta is the southern most region of Vietnam. It was formed by the sediment deposited by the Mekong river, the process which continue today.

Life in the Mekong Delta revolves much around the river, and many of the villages are often accessible by rivers and canals rather than by road. Taking a boat trip to explore the green and tranquil countryside along the legendary Mekong River, visitors will not only have chance to visit floating market where sellers and buyers bargain and exchange agriculture products on boats but also can taste local specialties while listening to “Cai Luong” – a form of Vietnamese folk opera.
