Mekong Delta is covered with rice fields, lush gardens, rivers, and channels with fishes and many gifts from Mother Nature. Mekong Delta is often referred to as the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam due to its huge production of the rice crop. Life in the delta revolves around the river, and this is the only real way to view and understand it.
