Mekong Delta (Vietnam). 'The food bowl of Vietnam, the Mekong Delta is an overwhelmingly green expanse but surprisingly heavily populated all the same. Those longing for a taste of local life far from fellow travellers will find it in many of the small, isolated cities in the Mekong’s forgotten (by tourism at least) corners.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/vietnam/mekong-delta
Whilst visiting Ho Chi Minh City join a tour and board a boat for the highlight of our day – a trip on the Mekong River. The Mekong River originates in Tibet and flows through six countries: China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. When reaching Vietnam, the river divides itself into nine tributaries, like nine dragons spitting out water, forming a huge fertile delta. .
