Mekong Delta

The mighty Mekong River, (known locally as Cuu Long, or the ‘River of Nine Dragons’) is the life-blood of Indochina and empties out into The South China Sea in a seemingly endless mass of waterways and canals that is the Mekong Delta.

A constant hive of activity, this vast area is home to endless floating markets, green rice paddies crisscrossed by canals as far as the eye can see and an incalculable number of sleepy villages, all inhabited by some of the friendliest people in Asia.

Not just a side trip from Ho Chi Minh, the Mekong River offers a great way to cross from Vietnam into Cambodia and an overnight stop in Can Tho or Chao Doc is highly recommended.
