Overview Mekong Delta

1. LOCATION

The Mekong Delta, also known as the “Nine Dragons River Delta” to Vietnamese as their 9 tributaries of the Mekong River, lies in the south of Vietnam, where there are the proper lands for rivers, and big lakes to grow. It consists of one city and twelve provinces.

The region has plain terrain and fertile soil so it has become the largest area of the country to grow crops and tropical plants. With the advantages it has, it attracts tourists by river tourism.

2. BEST TIME TO VISIT TO MEKONG DELTA

The weather of the Mekong Delta is favorable to visit all year round. The average temperature is about 30 degree Celsius and the region has some rainy months.

September and November are the floating seasons, also considered the best time to visit the Mekong Delta. During this time, lots of local activities happened and thanks to that, numerous tourists worldwide had a pour on the spot.

The dry season starts from December to April with moderate temperatures and less rainfall. You can opt for many interesting activities like riding a bike through the countryside or visiting the local villages. This time is also the fruit harvest season which means you can taste some of the freshest and most delicious tropical fruits of Vietnam.

From May to November is the rainy season. In particular, August and September have the highest rainfall. But even if nature favors the place, rain usually occurs in a short time and won’t impact too much on your Mekong Delta tour.

3. THINGS TO DO IN MEKONG DELTA

Exploring the Floating Market

If you haven’t visited the floating market that means you haven’t been to Mekong Delta. This unique feature makes the region stand out from other places in Vietnam.

There are many floating markets in the Mekong Delta but the most famous ones are Cai Be (Tien Giang Province), Cai Rang (Can Tho Province), Tra On (Vinh Long), Nga Bay (Hau Giang Province) and Nga Nam (Soc Trang Province). The markets open early in the morning around 3 a.m. until midday or late afternoon. But the busiest time is at 5 or 6 a.m., so if you want to see the markets at their best, you should wake up early.

Exploring the Floating Market

Exploring the Floating Market

Every day, traders and buyers from all the channels across the province row to a place to exchange goods. They hang the sample of their product on an upright pole so that people can see what they are selling.

Going by local wooden boat, you can reach inside the market and join the fun. A wide range of products is loaded on the boats from fruits, poultry products, and domestic utensils to local specialties.

Moreover, you will have a chance to talk and meet the locals and catch some epic shots.

Explore the Famous Orchards

Mekong Delta is fertile in soil, which is why the region is the country's largest area growing crops and tropical trees. Visiting here, you cannot miss some of the magnificent orchards. One of the most famous orchards that we cannot mention is Cai Be (Tien Giang Province).

Ecotourism is available for tourists, right in this large fruit basket, people can try many kinds of tropical fruits. When strolling through the orchards, you can pick some fruits from the tree and buy them.

Other than that, you can enjoy local cuisines in the cozy leave restaurant, catching fish by a net, and cruising on the channels around the area. Other choices for you, Cai Mon fruit orchard (Ben Tre province), and Vinh Long fruit orchard (Vinh Long province) are also common.

Visiting Pagodas

Vietnam is also a country of Buddha worshiping, combined with many groups of people, Buddha temples, and stupas are constructed differently in each region. Vinh Trang pagoda of My Tho is as glorious as ever. Its outlook is like a royal palace with colorful patterns and is recognized as a Vietnamese historical and cultural heritage.

Travel high to the mountain of Chau Doc province, you will be impressed by the ancient Chinese-style pagoda - Cavern. Being a residence of caves, numerous Buddha statues, and especially the 1000-arm and 1000-eye goddess, the stupas provide a fresh and peaceful atmosphere.

Cruise on the River

With an interlaced river and channel system, the Mekong Delta has a big opportunity to develop river tourism, and yes it does. On the small hand-rowing boat, you will be taken through the tropical forests, fields, and local residences. The view provided during your sightseeing trip is just so lovely. River cruising is available in most provinces of the Mekong Delta.

Try Net Fishing

Fishing is always an interesting outdoor activity. In the countryside region that you are about to travel to, you can try hooking fish or net fishing with the instruction of natives. After work, you can enjoy the reward.

Sunbathing at the Beach

Travel to Phu Quoc, where you can enjoy the ideal beaches with warm and clean sea sand, blue water, and palm trees dancing in the wind. Also, be famous for its breathtaking views, Nam Du islet is on the list. The spot owns both pebble and sand beaches and tourism services are provided well in the place.

The landscape along the way you move is way more than amazing.

The place is a submerged wetland of 135 hectares in the core area and 500 hectares in the buffer zone. The location is best to enjoy during the flood season of monsoon, at which lotus and water lilies are in their blossom period.

4. WHAT TO EAT & BUY IN MEKONG DELTA
