Mekong Delta is known as The Nine Dragon river delta since it is formed by nine rivers. The background of this area is the largest site of endless paddy rice fields, coconut farms, tropical fruit gardens. It is very easy for you to catch sight of children riding on the back of the water buffaloes and farmers working on the fields, trading on the floating markets. The rural communities are just the thing for all tourists who want to get rid of the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy yourselves with many beautiful landscapes such as floating markets, Unicorn island, Vinh Sang farm, An Binh island, bee farm, craft village, traditional working village… and many attractive folk games.

Took part in a guided tour today and our tour guide was Mr Lu. He was very knowledgeable and gave us information throughout the tour. His English is excellent so no problems language wise. We enjoyed a fantastic day going to local villages and seeing how coconut oil is made and even snake wine :). I highly recommend this tour with Mr Lu! You will collect memories for back home!
