Mekong Delta Holidays

The rice bowl of Vietnam

Known as the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, we love the way the landscape of the Mekong Delta is carpeted with varying shades of green and mighty waterways where boats, houses, restaurants and even markets float.

This is a place where you can can dwell on southern charm in little-visited riverside cities; sample fruits traded in the colourful floating markets; or feast on home-cooked delicacies. Mangrove forests, sacred Khmer pagodas and off-the-beaten-track attractions complete the picture of this beautiful part of Vietnam.

Be sure to also visit Ho Chi Minh City, bursting with tradition and modernity, or make the trip to Phu Quoc for pure shores and secluded paradise.
