Mekong Delta - One of The Most Important Wetlands in the World

Wetlands are found in almost every region of the world and are considered the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems. They provide habitat for a great number of water and land species. They are also an important environment to many migratory bird species. Types of wetlands include swamps, bogs, marshes and estuaries. Vietnam's Mekong Delta is also the most important wetlands in the world.

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 officially starts about 100 km to the south west of Ho Chi Minh City.  The delta region encompasses a large portion of southeastern Vietnam of 39000 km2.

Mekong Delta is a flooded world of floating markets, rustic and rugged houses, mud-coloured waters associated with noise, crowds, and shouts, where you can see piles of fruits on bustling clusters of boats or navigate through rows of coconut palms, forests of cajuput and mangrove and immerse yourself in the natural wilderness.

Comprised of dense green rice paddies and lazy, winding rivers, the Mekong Delta is like no other region in Vietnam. Whether firmly on land or floating with the river current, this region is flush with wildlife, historical sights, and incredible landscapes. The River of Nine Dragons, as locals know the area, is where the Mekong splinters into nine separate branches, crisscrossing low landscapes before reaching the sea. Life moves much more slowly here and is often surrounded by water. You'll find even homes, farms, and markets take on an aquatic adaptation in the Mekong Delta.
