Overview

The Mekong Delta officially starts about 60 miles (100 kilometers) to the west and southof Ho chi minh city. The floating markets on the delta are really in full-flow early morning. Along day on the river can be hot and unshaded, even with refreshment stops - so take precautions!This is an area of lush, tropical and fertile lands. It is often referred to as the 'rice bowl' of Vietnam due its huge production of rice crop. Vegetables, exotic fruits (coconuts, mangoes, rambutan) and fishing alsofeature prominently here. Life in the delta revolves around the river, and as such this is the only real way to view and understand it.

    Es ist ein Erlebnis auf dem Fluss dahin zu gleiten und dem geschäftigen Treiben der Händler zuzusehen, kurz anzulegen um eine Besichtigung durchzuführen

    My husband and I had a fun day touring the Mekong Delta, led by Sally. The bus journey was easy going and lively as Sally kept us informed with her good English speaking skills and laughing with her funny and witty humour.The boat trip was a good experience too. On the whole, very enjoyable!
