The true face of rural vietnam

The Mekong Delta is located in South Vietnam and has been formed by deposits of sediments carried by the Mekong over centuries. It's one of the largest rivers in the world, so big in fact that it has two daily tides. The river is known locally as Sông Cửu Long (River of Nine Dragons) since it breaks into 9 separate estuaries at mouth in the South China Sea.

The area is known as the "Rice Basket" because it produces enough rice to feed the entire nation and fuel exports. While it is still a rural area, it has one of the highest population densities in Vietnam and practically the entire surface area is used for rice cultivation.

The villages of South Vietnam are located on the banks of the Mekong and the people usually move around on boats along the network of canals spreading out from the river. There are floating markets and lots of houseboats. In other words, it's more than just a river...it's a way of life.

Unbeatable

Imagine hearing the wind whistling through the palm trees gently rocking the boat and intermingling with singing of a native Vietnamese. It’s enough to transport you to another time. For a moment, I opened my eyes and I saw the sky blending with the river. A truly unique experience.

The mekong delta, a captivating place...

The Mekong Delta, a captivating place to join sky and sea during the rainy season. Mouth of a river that passes through Asia, which is struggling to flow into the sea, causing a buildup of sediment, and thus, if the particular form of the delta. Flora (mangrove) such as wildlife (all kinds of fish!) Are remarkable Attic rice from Vietnam, mythical place, the battle between water and land so well described by Marguerite Duras, who lived in Sadec. Landscapes over water that are essential, and the originality and uniqueness of Vietnam.

Le delta du Mékong, un endroit envoutant où se joignent ciel et mer lors de la saison des pluies. Embouchure d'un fleuve qui traverse l'Asie, et qui peine à s'écouler dans la mer, provoquant une accumulation de sédiments, et ainsi, la forme si particulière du delta. La flore (mangrove) comme la faune (toute sorte de poissons!) y sont remarquables
Grenier à riz du Vietnam, lieu mythique, combat entre l'eau et la terre si bien décrit par Marguerite Duras, qui a vécu à Sadec. Des paysages au fil de l'eau qui sont incontournables, et qui font l'originalité et la particularité du Vietnam.

Then the program may differ depending on your tastes. Do not miss to get lost on foot or bicycle, in the maze of the rural surroundings of the delta.

Le Delta du Mekong, au sud de Ho Chi Minh Ville, se visite généralement via un tour organisé. Nombreuses sont les agences qui proposent 1, 2 ou 3 jours de visite. Première étape: le bateau, pour traverser une des branches du fleuve. Puis le programme peut différer selon vos goûts.

The delta of the river of the nine dragons

During the boat ride on the Mekong Delta, you'll see the vegetation and the houseboats on the banks and most of all, the real rural Vietnam. It is an incredibly vast area of ​​nearly 40,000 square miles in which there is a large growth of rice.

Otra manera de vivir.

Las excursiones en barcas de remo valen mucho la pena. Si, además, conseguís que duren más de media hora... genial.

Better take his time

For the magic happens, I think we should be well prepared his getaway, or take time on site. It did neither the one nor the other and it is felt. As it was at the end of trip, and we had privileged island Phu Quoc, we had no choice but to prepare for a trip one day short. Unless you can not be there very early in the morning to My Tho and Can to the floating market. I find the Mekong very impressive, it's really huge. Lots to do and see: fruit gardens, floating market, visit craft, boat, explore the arroyos, small islands ...

Mieux vaut prendre son temps

Pour que la magie opère, je pense qu'il faut soit bien préparer son escapade, soit prendre du temps sur place. On n'a fait ni l'un ni l'autre et ça s'est ressenti. Comme c'était en fin de voyage, et qu'on avait privilégié l'île de Phu Quoc, on a pas eu d'autre choix que de préparer une escapade d'une seule journée, trop court. A moins que vous ne puissiez être sur place très tôt le matin à My tho ou Can to pour le marché flottant. Je trouve le Mékong très impressionnant, c'est vraiment immense. Beaucoup de choses à faire et à voir : jardins fruitiers, marché flottant, visites d'artisanat, bateau, découverte des arroyos, petites îles...
