Traveling to explore the South Vietnam region gives you extremely rich and colorful things. The excitement of the young city of Saigon is rising, the sea of Vung Tau is green, and most notably is the Mekong River.
The Mekong Delta is rich and abundant, like a colorful picture. That place has the bustle of generous people, with deep beauty from nature.
If you come to the Mekong Delta, remember to visit Cai Rang floating market in Can Tho City to feel the daily life of the people in the river. The market stands out with colorful boats going up and down; the canoeists are like flexible artists with oars controlling the canoes skillfully weaving among hundreds of boats without any collision.
Floating markets are not only available in Can Tho, river markets are also present in Cai Be (Tien Giang), Chau Doc (An Giang). Every morning, between the four sides of the river, hundreds of large and small boats park with the typical image of the tall poles, which hang products available to sell without needing to advertise like the markets on the mainland.
You will be impressed by the peaceful life in Mekong Delta. The beauty of the countryside in the South is imprinted through the green jaggery fields, rich mangrove forests, and fruit-laden orchards.
The most vibrant life of the south region is the floating-water season, around August to November ( the 7th and 8th lunar calendar). The floating-water season is also the living-earned season of people in the Mekong Delta. At this time, many kinds of fishes follow the water, bringing a rich source of aquatic products.
And further south of Vietnam, you will be amazed by the beauty of the pearl island, Phu Quoc Island. This place is considered the resort paradise of beach tourism in Vietnam. With ravishing beaches, along with warm weather almost all year round, on your journey to discover Vietnam, you should remember to list this place to visit.
In addition to the beautiful scenery, like anywhere on the S-shaped land, the cuisine of the South is extremely rich and diverse. You will find not only local dishes but also food from other regions that are accepted in the local cuisine.
And the best place to discover this area’s cuisine is still the biggest center, which is Ho Chi Minh City. Bun Bo Nam Bo (Southern Beef Noodles), Pho Saigon, Banh Xeo Nam Bo (Southern Pancake), Fish Porridge, Vietnamese broken rice, and many more are waiting for you to taste.
