My Tho, Tien Giang province
Mekong delta comprises of 13 provinces which occupy an area of 40, 000 square kilometers in Southern Vietnam. It is considered as the biggest granary of Vietnam and provides 60% of the nation's rice. It is also a region that supplies many tropical fruits such as papaya, coconut, banana, etc. . .
In Vietnam, we usually call Mekong Delta 'the Nine Dragon River Delta'. Once the Mekong river flows into Vietnam territory, it splits into two main branches. Both of these branches divide into many tributaries. They used to empty into the sea at nine points. But today there are only seven.

Our customized day tour into the Mekong Delta was truly a memorable experience. We were hoping to meet the people and travel the land with a local guide. Khoa by far exceeded our expectations. From the pick up at the hotel in Saigon, his capturing stories about the region on the drive, to the various boat rides on river and side canals and of course the amazing people we met. Thank you for this wonderful journey
