Experiencing nature and local food
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.

Very good. Good english and adjusted the tour as necessary for our interests. The travel time is long for the time of the tour but is the reality for the port used. Our travel time was better so he added a couple of stops. Much appreciated.
