Mekong River Delta

1 reviews

The Mekong Delta officially starts about 60 miles (100 kilometers) to the west and south of Ho Chi Minh City. The floating markets on the delta are really in full-flow early morning. A long day on the river can be hot and unshaded, even with refreshment stops – so take precautions!

Mekong River Delta

Mekong River Delta

The Mekong Delta covers an area of approximately 15,000 square miles (40,000 square kilometers) to the west of Ho Chi Minh City. The Mekong Delta is where the mighty Mekong river completes its 2,700 mile (4,300 km) journey from the Tibetan plateau and empties its riches into the South China Sea.

This is an area of lush, tropical and fertile lands. It is often referred to as the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam due its huge production of rice crop. Vegetables, exotic fruits (coconuts, mangoes, rambutan) and fishing also feature prominently here. Life in the delta revolves around the river, and as such this is the only real way to view and understand it. See its many waterways, communities and cottage industries that are so vital to the way of living here including the thriving local floating markets.

The area is rich in lush green vegetation and the pace of life is relaxing, the setting natural and serene. This makes for a great break away from the hustle of the city and an insight into local life.

Hynos Travel provides a wide range of day tours, multi-day tours, tour packages which daily depart from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). For more information or tour reservation, please contact info@hynostravel.com
