Mekong Delta Cruises
Best Mekong delta tours and Mekong cruises are updated for 2017 - 2018
The Mekong Delta is the most populous area of Vietnam, now home to about 18 million people, and considered the "rice basket" of the country. Vietnamese people call it the “Nine Dragons Delta” because the Mekong River divides into two smaller branches when it enters Vietnam, then those two branches divide into nine "mouths" flowing to the East Sea that look like nine dragons on the map.
