Mekong River like our mother, the river brings us a lot of values. From the river, we got fish, water, and a hundred millions ton of mud, silt nutrition and natural resources for the farm and gardens. Above all, the awesome river chose our homeland is the last stop after a journey through over 4.000km of 6 countries.
The Mekong River is the 12th longest in the world and borders Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, especially Vietnam.
The Mekong Delta – “Nine Dragon river delta” is the region in southwestern Vietnam where the Mekong River approaches and empties into the sea through a network of distributaries. The Mekong delta region encompasses a large portion of southwestern Vietnam of over 40,500 square kilometers (15,600 sq mi).
In addition, it’s flat, hot and green, the Mekong Delta is Vietnam’s most important agricultural region. Much of the area is covered by rice paddies that are irrigated by Delta water and fertilized by delta silt. Most importantly, do not miss the amazing Mekong Delta when you travel to Vietnam.
