THE MEKONG RIVER DELTA
April 17, 2018
To escape the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City, an awesome visit is the Mekong river delta in South Vietnam. Only a 2-hour bus ride from the big city Ho Chi Minh, the Mekong river is a perfect day trip for those who are seeking some true rural experiences in Vietnam. The Mekong river is the longest river in Southeast Asia and the 12th longest river in the world. Tibet is where the river commences and from there it journeys through Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Since the river ends in South Vietnam towards the South China Sea it is a river delta where many small canals, flowy streams and narrow rivers cross the landscape like arteries.
