The Mekong Delta

Can Tho is the fourth largest city in Vietnam, and the largest city in the Mekong Delta, a region in charge of producing all the rice for the country. The area is full of floating markets, an endless number of canals, and it’s where we saw the rural life of Vietnam. We spent most of the time on a small boat going from market to market and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
