What to Expect

The Mekong is one of the world’s largest and longest rivers. It runs through many countries and flows into the southern sea of Vietnam through an area known as ‘9 mouths’, where a broad and fertile delta is created. This area is referred to as Vietnam’s rice basket, responsible for the bulk of the nation’s food production and home to some of its most captivating scenery. The best way to discover this spectacular rural landscape is to stay with a local family and learn first-hand about their way of life.
