FULL DAY ORIGINAL MEKONG DELTA BY BOAT

INFO

Mekong Delta is the region in southwest of Vietnam where the mighty Mekong River approaches and empties into the sea through a network of distributaries. With a system of fertile soil and dense rivers and canals, the Mekong Delta is the agricultural heart of southern Vietnam and also one of the most important fishing regions in all of Vietnam. Escaping hustle and bustle of the city, a day on the Mekong Delta is an ideal option to explore a quieter side of Vietnamese life and understand what real-life is like in the Mekong. The hospitality and the simplicity of local people will definitely make your trip even more enjoyable
