The Mekong Delta. A Boat Trip. And the Mangrove Swamps.


VietnamI took an overnight tour to the Mekong Delta in the South West, an area I wanted to see more of. It included visits to a diversity of attractions and the opportunity to drive through some of the rich farm land. One of the loveliest things was being rowed down the mangrove swamps and estuaries of the Mekong river.

Quiet but for the rhythmic lapping of the water as the row drove through it. A conical hat for shade, I could sense the presence of the thousands of creatures the swamps and islands held and hid from me as we moved downstream.



And there I was happy as can be, taking in the magic of it all.
