SAIGON - MEKONG DELTA 01 DAY

The Mekong Delta is the southernmost region of Vietnam. Often referred to as the rice bowl of the country it currently produces three crops of rice per year. The fertile Mekong Delta is also famous for its tropical fruits and flowers. The Delta area is the end of a 4500 km journey the Mekong River makes, travelling through six countries. The Mekong’s Vietnamese name is Cuu Long, meaning Nine Dragons, so called because of the nine branches of the river that flow into the sea.
