MEKONG DELTA PRIVATE DAY TOUR - EXPLORE CRAFTING VILLAGES IN MEKONG DELTA
The Mekong Delta is the most populous area of Vietnam, now home to about 20 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.
Luco Travel has designed a number of Mekong delta tours through the intricate waterways of this fascinating region, offering travellers an intimate glimpse into the lives and occupations of the people living here.
