My Tho, Tien Giang province


Mekong delta comprises 13 provinces which occupy an area of 40, 000 square kilometers in the South Vietnam. It is considered as the biggest granary of Vietnam and provides 60% of nation's rice. It is the place of different tropical fruits such as papaya, coconut, banana, etc. . . When people come here they can enjoy the seasonal fruits all year round.
In Vietnam, we usually call Mekong delta 'the Nine dragon river delta' since the Mekong river flows into Vietnam territory, it splits into two main branches. These two main branches split into many tributaries. They used to empty into the sea at nine points. But today only at seven points.

A Recent Review of this tour

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
