The Mekong Delta

The Mekong Delta is the bottom half of Vietnam's two rice baskets (the other being the Red River Delta in the North). This vast delta is formed by the deposition of the multiple tentacles and sound of the mighty Mekong River, which has its origin in the Tibetan highland, plateau 2,800 miles away. 


The people of south Vietnam are often very proud of the richness and vastness of this land. When referring to the rice fields in this area, they often say, "co bay thang canh", meaning the land is so large that the cranes can stretch their wings as they fly. Today, the region is one of Vietnam's highest producers of rice crops, vegetables and fruits.

  • Biking through the lush fields of rice and shady canopy of various fruits trees.
  • Staying in a homestay and learning about their daily lives of the locals.
