Mekong Delta travel guide

Flea Markets · Kayaking & Canoeing · Landmarks
Interlaced with rivers and canals feeding rice-growing plains and lush wetlands, the Mekong Delta impresses with its bustling floating metropolis. Tours of the Mekong Delta revolve around boat trips to floating markets and even whole towns on stilts, and trips to tranquil inland villages with slow, traditional lifestyles. As the rice bowl of Vietnam, the Mekong Delta offers foodies plenty to sink their teeth into: tours of rice paddies and orchards, fresh produce from floating stands, and delicious freshwater fish dishes. Other possibilities for a Mekong Delta itinerary include temples with ornate pagodas, wartime bunkers, and mangrove forests sheltering rare waterfowl and migratory birds.
