The Mekong River is wide and long. Beat a number of countries. Among other things, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. Many attractive activities for travelers are provided through solemn travel packages along this river. An interesting experience. Package prices are also suitably paid.

When visiting Ho Chi Minh, the Mekong River and delta is a must do...just because you are already in the area...well.. a 2 hour bus ride from Ho Chi Minh City. Initially, you may be turned off by the murky water but as the day goes along you’ll end up forgetting about it and eventually enjoy being a tourist by visiting the coconut candy factory, the delta, and having lunch in the area. You will not regret it unless...it pours and it will be tough to enjoy the tour.
