Mekong river delta
Patchworks of rice paddies stretch to the horizon, criss-crossed by shimmering waterways. Complementary colour is added by temples, their resident monks cloaked in bright orange robes making this corner of Vietnam feel close in more than a geographical sense to neighbouring Laos and Thailand.
To get a sense of Delta life visitors can join a Mekong cruise and take to the waterways to experience floating markets where all manner of weird and wonderful produce is traded between vessels small and large. A Mekong boat trip will bring you closest to the people of the region and the waterworld they inhabit.
For further discovery and things to do in the Mekong explore the myriad narrow paths that fan out into the paddies by bicycle and find sleepy villages and fanciful temples before taking rest in a peaceful homestay, classic hotel or a contemporary lodge for the night.
