An incredibly fertile region it's prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output.  Life for villages in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta, people are more likely to transport by river than road.

Upon arrival into My Tho we board our private boat for a cruise on the Mekong River.  Our first stop is at a fish farm to gain an insight into one of the cottage industries in the region. On our boat ride our local guide will take us to visit an island with lush tropical gardens where we have a chance to sample tropical fruit.  Continuing to another island in the Mekong Delta we learn more about another cottage industry, coconut candy. 

Our local guide will take us to a factory and explain the process of making the sweet.  We have a chance to visit local villages in the area and learn more about the traditional lifestyles, culture and customs of people who call the Delta their home.
