Mekong Delta Travel
Pancake flat but lusciously green and beautiful, the Mekong Delta is the southernmost region of Vietnam. It was formed by sediment deposited by the Mekong River, a process which continues today; silt deposits extend the delta’s shoreline at the mouth of the river by as much as 79m per year. The river is so large that it has two daily tides. At low tide in the dry season, boats cannot even move through the shallow canals.
Hardly any part of Vietnam is blessed with such a rich soil and hardworking people like Mekong Delta, where the national grain is grown. As one travels away from the overcrowded Ho Chi Minh City to the Southwest, he or she will be pleasantly surprised by the landscape and people here, which are both too sweet to resist.
The majority of the delta is crisscrossed by a system of canals and river; with large lots of rice planted in between. Just like nature, people’s lives here are also attached to the waterway, many making their homestead on the water surface. The primary means of transportation in Mekong Delta is small boat, which is also the best way to cruise through the region.
Dubbed “biological treasure trove”, Mekong Delta is home to some 10,000 species of fauna and flora. From mangrove forests to floating markets, Mekong Delta is a unique place to uncover the hidden charm of Vietnam. Come and experience a different walk of life, to savour the coconut-based food and sweets, and to ease your life off a bit as you listen to a traditional “ho” verse.
