The Mekong Delta Region, Vietnam

18th – 21st September 2014

The Mekong Delta region was a vast area of rivers, floating villages and markets.  I spent the last few days of Vietnam in this area, before getting a boat over the border into Cambodia.

Here are a few photos from the area:

Unfortunately,  and this goes for many areas in Vietnam,  there is a lot of rubbish in the rivers and seas, it’s a sad sight.

  1. Where’s the end product of the hairdresser?? Shame about the river it looks quite dirty!! All an interesting experience thoughxx

  2. Hi ha, was a bit freaky reading or rather looking at your amazing pics as a new series has started on tv all about the Mekong with Sue Perkins.. She failed to visit your hairdresser and is not half as adventurous as you lol 😄. Enjoying all your sending. Keep em coming. Hope you are ok and having the time of your life. X

  3. I like the floating petrol station! I wonder if it gives you the choice of “Pay at the pump” or “Pay in kiosk”!!

  4. Love the pics as usual , love the hairdresser glad you never got electrucuted with all those plugs ha ging every where lol xxx
