    Straw Hat Wearing Vietnamese
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: It's hot, humid, lush and tropical! Since It can be blisteringly hot in the Mekong Delta Area from May to October and this is August, the ubiquitous Vietnamese conical hat is essential to wear here! It cost 8,000-10,000 VND Each and you can even bring it back as souvenir!

    Fondest memory: I look like a VC in the pictures hehe!

    house on the delta

    Favorite thing: My Tho is the capital city and municipality of the Tiền Giang Province in the Mekong Delta, about 2 hours south of Ho Hi Minh. It has a population of about 160,000 inhabitants and it is a popular starting point for the one day mekong Delta tour.

    It's not the real delta.. or better, it's the outskirts of th delta... still, it was a very pleasant day out of town... enough to wet your appetite for the delta, and to make you go back for more and longer. The visits are quite touristy, though simple - but the scenery is top class.

    It is a nice starting point for tourists to take a boat trip on the Mekong.

    Fondest memory: Crossing the main branches of the delta is interesting... plenty of water traffic which I would not have imagined... but I liked best boating the smaller and inner canals, seeing the traditional stilt houses and people boating to and fro.
