The Silence of Mekong Delta (đồng bằng sông Cửu Long)


đồng bằng sông Cửu Long, in Vietnamese refers to Mekong Delta; formed by meeting of the great Mekong River on a very flat pane into the South China Sea. Spanning 39,000 square kilometers it forms a triangle from Mỹ Tho (in the east) to Hà Tiên (north west) and Cà Mau (southern tip); where this mass are covered with water but its size would depends on the weather and season.


Located just below two hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City on the west, this delta attracts visitors from all over the world to see its fertile land, making Vietnam the second largest rice producer in the world just behind Thailand.

In the middle of the busy tourist arrivals I have managed to capture the silent half of the Mekong Delta. Here they are.

Daily routine waiting for visitors.
Smaller "sampan"s waiting too.
Guest chalets on the delta.
The only public transportation here.
Making its way to the South China Sea.

More tranquility of the Delta coming in my next post, stay tuned or stay subscribed!
