The Mekong Delta stretches over an area of 39,000 square kilometres and at its heart is the city of Can Tho. Explore the bustling floating markets by boat where you will see the locals buying and exchanging goods.
The lush and fertile Mekong Delta serves as Vietnam's 'rice bowl'. At the heart of the delta are the towns of Chau Doc and Can Tho - host to the area's most famous floating markets. A cruise on the Mekong will take you past small villages, plantations, orchards and catfish farms. Here you can also learn about the local industry by visiting factories and witnessing local products such as rice paste and coconut candies being made.
Abercrombie & Kent's Mekong Delta cruises & holidays are the perfect way to explore this charming region.
