The Mekong Delta is Vietnam’s most vibrant hive and mouth to one of Asia’s great rivers, as well as home to millions of people in the busy towns and markets in between. Called the ‘rice basket’ of Vietnam, the region enjoys diversity dotted with green fields and sleepy villages intertwined by canals and rivulets, and self-sustaining river life. See longtail boats darting up and down the river, as well as dodgy smaller wooden ones used by floating market vendors. Can Tho, the largest city on the Mekong Delta, is a buzzing town with an animated waterfront edged with manicured gardens, narrow backstreets and wide boulevards. It is famous for floating markets, Buddhist pagodas, delicious food and fresh produce.
