The Mekong Delta in south-east Vietnam is one of the world’s greatest river regions. The delta is a hive of activity and serves as a crucial transport and agricultural hub. Known as the ‘rice bowl of Vietnam’, this lush and fertile region produces more than enough rice to feed the whole country and also harvests a bountiful supply of sugar cane, coconut and fruit. With verdant rice paddy fields, colourful fruit orchards, enchanting villages and bustling floating markets, it is also an area of incredible beauty. Life thrives on the delta, which is home to hundreds of species of animals and fish, not to mention its human inhabitants. The region is divided by an endless web of streams, rivers and canals and the locals have adapted well to life on the water; travelling, fishing, trading and even sleeping on their sampans and boats, they maintain a very traditional way of life.

The gateway to the Mekong Delta is My Tho which is a market town, famous for its floating market and the largest city in the region is Can Tho.

Those short on time can enjoy a day trip to the Mekong Delta from Ho Chi Minh City and discover the magic of life along the riverbanks aboard a traditional sampan boat, stopping to explore remote villages and islands, learn about local trade and barter for goods at Cai Be floating market. Alternatively see more of this magical region on an overnight cruise or spend a night at a homestay around Vinh Long, to gain a unique insight into local life.
