Mekong Delta The 13 Provinces
Mekong Delta is made up of the twelve provinces: Ben Tre, Tra Vinh, Dong Thap, Long An, Kien Giang, Tien Giang, An Giang, Vinh Long, Hau Giang, Soc Trang, Bac Lieu, Ca Mau and Can Tho. A closer look at each of the provinces will spark light on its landscape, people and culture that make up Mekong as a whole.
85 km away from Ho Chi Minh City and connected to surrounding areas via Rach Mieu Bridge, Ben Tre is one of the most popular Mekong Delta provinces among foreign visitors.
Soc Trang Province is the token of the cultural harmony, being the place where the Vietnamese and descendants of the Cham empire are living in peace.
Tien Giang province, with its Cai Be district, is famous for the boisterous economy on the float. As such, the land is full of docks where goods come and go and the trading activities happen directly on the water.
The only city to be administered by the country, Can Tho City is pretty much the urban face of the Mekong Delta Region.
An Giang Province's economy thrives on the seabass fish besides tourism. Like Soc Trang, An Giang is characterized by the co-habitation of the Vietnamese, the Khmer and the Cham, which gives rise to the interestingly diverse culture and history.
Tra Vinh is one of the Mekong Delta regions where the Khmer Krom form large communities and live in harmony with the local Vietnamese.
Unlike her counterparts in the Mekong Delta Region, Vinh Long’s landscape and thus, tourism centers around the real-life experiences in the fruit gardens.
A typical province in the Cuu Long Delta, Dong Thap has a complex system of rivers, channels, springs, as well as big lakes and ponds.
Perched on a platform roughly 30 kilometers off Ho Chi Minh City, Long An is a mid-sized province of the Mekong Delta region.
Bac Lieu, located in the southernmost region of Vietnam, enjoys all the blessings of nature- a long coastline, interlacing rivers, dense forests, a copious monsoon, and plenty of sunshine.
Located in the southernmost tip of Vietnam, Ca Mau is about 380 km from Ho Chi Minh City and is served by Ca Mau Airport.
