Mekong Delta & Phu Quoc

The life-sustaining, Mekong River traverses Southern Vietnam, with hundreds of canals and streams crisscrossing the land. Lush rice paddies and watery green fields nourish the whole country with an abundance of exotic fruits and vegetables. A bustle of floating markets and rickety houseboats with movable fish farms provide sustenance and social structure. Elsewhere in the south, the gulf island of Phu Quoc beckons for its white-sanded beaches, wealth of natively caught seafood, and production of much-loved fish sauce.
