Fresh fruits and vegetables, Mekong Delta, Vietnam

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

A Day on the Mekong Delta, Vietnam

A Day on the Mekong Delta, Vietnam. From Can Tho, visit the floating markets, see the rice fields, visit a snake farm, and eat some of the best pineapple ever!

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. .
