Exploring Mekong Delta
Imagine uncovering ten thousand new categories of flora and fauna in 39,000 square kilometres; it is little wonder Mekong Delta has been dubbed the rice basket of Vietnam, hiding surprising kernels of culture, discovery and agriculture.
Exploring the Mekong Delta will remove travellers from their idealised Vietnam, encouraging a gear change, as the bustling streets of Saigon fade away and water hewn villages emerge, stoic and hardworking.
Beginning with My Tho, a water-way network streams open, as the options and inlets spread out before the eye and boat operators guide curious droves through the turns and rivets. Forget the rickety bus and too-expensive cab rides, the comforts of dry-land are exchanged for an abundance of soggy rice fields, fruit orchids, coconut candy factories, fresh seafood and floating townships.
The locals are friendly and cheerful, sharing spicy seafood secrets and back-way motorbike trips, to steer you off the tourist trail, even for a couple of hours. After delving into urban My Tho, stay the night over the waterways on Vinh Long, bunking on a grouping of small islands.
