With the tour series named Toward the South-West, we wishes to bring you impressive images of the generous, motherly Mekong Delta accompanied by its typical culture. Fertile alluvial from the rivers have been nurturing numerous fruitful farms year after year. The two main rivers of the delta named Tiền Giang and Hậu Giang (which mean Front River and Back River) have been supplying water for endless fresh fields spreading up to the skyline. The delta’s culture was born from and has been attached to rivers and farms, showing clearly in the busy atmosphere of the Cái Răng Floating Market or in many handicraft villages on the riversides. With their truthful, hospitable, and generous personalities, people in the South-West have embedded their own beautiful images in the hearts of tourists from every corner of the world.
