With statistics like the world’s 12th longest river, and the 7th longest in Asia, it won’t be hard for anyone to imagine the grandeur of the Mekong.
Better known among the locals by the name “the Nine Dragons River”, these nine dragons have helped feed some twenty millions people and shaped a whole cultivation we are proud to call The Water Rice Civilization. For thousands of years, the silt of the Mekong created a rich, fertile soil that sustain the lives of millions people who depends on it to survive. But, of course, like any monocrop agriculture, the prosperity of the river alone doesn’t make many millionaires. This area of the country is constantly strives with poverty, though the poverty had never broken the spirit and the good nature of its inhabitant.
The people of Mekong Delta, though lacks in gold, is extremely hospitable, generous and friendly. The sight of an old man tried to share his experience with a tourist with his broken English has always lingers in my mind. The government is trying their best to industrialize the land, so maybe the picture of great green paddy fields may not be present for very long, and every chance could be the last to see such peaceful vision.
For that very reason, come join us for a voyage along the stream of the Mekong on a Mekong Delta Tour, let’s explore the hospitality that the locals offer, the unique life that blossoms in between the waves and the exotic culture like you have never experienced before.
