Mekong River Delta (Dong Bang Song Cuu Long)

Vietnam is famous for its two big areas of growing rice (one in the North, Red River Delta, and another in the South, Mekong River Delta). Both of them are known as the rice baskets among Vietnam.

Mekong River Delta is formed from the strong Mekong River which originated from Tibetan Highland plateau. The delta is always renewed by the silt every year and the weather is good nearly all year round. Generally, there are two main seasons here: dry and rainy season. Mekong river delta is the richest land in Vietnam which is very suitable for farming, fishing, gardening, and raising poultry. Tourism also plays an important role in the development of the area because of the attractive landscapes and cultural value.

Mekong River Delta’s culture is various but unique which create the specialty for Vietnamese’s culture, that people often call “Van hoa mien Tay Nam Bo”. Local people are known as the very broad-minded, good nature, and rustic whose lives are mainly attached to the Mekong River. 

The typical images of Mekong River Delta are the large gardens and fish ponds. Tropical fruits are grown everywhere. There are thousands of gardens: papayas, milk apples, mangoes, durians, longans, dragons, coconuts, etc. Thousands of bonsai and petoria gardens enhance the beauty of the delta life.
