Mekong Delta Sleeping on boat (2 days 1 night)

The Mekong Delta is the bottom half of Vietnam two rice baskets, the other being the Red River Delta in the North. This vast delta is formed by the deposition of the multiple tentacles and tributaries of the mighty Mekong River which has its origin in the Tibetan highland plateau 2,800 miles away. From its source, the river makes its way through China, Myanmar (Burma), Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam before flowing out into the South China Sea. The Mekong Vietnamese name, Cuu Long, means Nine Dragons for the nine months that terminate the flow of this great river as it is absorbed by the sea.
The people of South Vietnam are often very proud of the richness and vastness of this land. Today, the region is one of Vietnam highest producers of rice crops, vegetables and fruits.
