The Mekong Delta is the region in southwestern Vietnam where the Mekong River approaches and empties into the sea through a network of distributaries.It encompasses a large portion of southwestern Vietnam of 15,000 sq mi The size of the area covered by water depends on the season.Th.Life in the Mekong Delta revolves much around the river, and many of the villages are often accessible by rivers and canals rather than by road.Vietnam’s ‘rice basket’, the Mekong Delta is a watery landscape of green fields and sleepy villages, everywhere crisscrossed by the brown canals and rivulets fed by the mighty Mekong River.The delta, which yields enough rice to feed the country with a sizable surplus, was formed by sediment deposited by the Mekong. The river is so large that it has two daily tides. Lush with rice paddies and fish farms, this delta plain also nourishes the cultivation of sugarcane, fruit, coconut and shrimp.
