Mekong Delta

Accessible from Ho Chi Minh City, in Southern Vietnam, the mighty Mekong River flows into a rich delta with thousands of waterways forming a labyrinth of major currents and secluded canals that are lined with vegetation, mangrove swamps and verdant rice fields.

Providing a lifeline to millions of people, the river offers a fascinating insight into the daily life of the locals – observe bartering skills at bustling floating markets, taste the potency of locally brewed rice wine, witness small family traditional candy businesses go about their tasks and watch artisans create beautiful pieces of art.

The sights, sounds and smells of the Mekong River will truly tantalise the taste buds.

For those who would like to explore this area from a different view point, a river cruise offers the perfect vantage point – please see the Active Asia River Cruising brochure for river cruising options.
