Mekong Delta among top ten best-value destinations for 2015
The Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam has been voted as one of the 10 best-value destinations for 2015 by Rough Guides, a British publisher of travel and reference guides.
The list is made based on economy, the worth of the experience, and the ability of travelers to integrate and explore the daily life and culture of local people.
As said about the delta by the website: “At the end of its epic journey through the heart of Indochina, the coffee-brown Mekong River splits, sloshing seawards through Vietnam. A pocketful of dong still goes a very long way in this delta region, and although the fertile plains and waterways are a riot of vivid colors and flavors, with endless opportunities for exploring by motorbike and boat, the area still sees surprisingly few foreign tourists. Wind up your trip with a few days on the island of Phu Quoc, whose southern shores are blissfully warm and shallow”.
In addition to the Mekong Delta of Vietnam, this list also features Kosovo, the Peak district in the UK, the Canary Islands in Spain, Karnataka in India, Northern Ireland, Alentejo in Portugal, Northwestern China, Oaxaca in Mexico, and Queens in the US.
If you travel to Vietnam, don’t miss the chance to explore the Mekong Delta with a wide range of activities to experience including visiting the floating market and discovering the local lives.
