I took a daytrip from Saigon to the Mekong Delta. One day is really not enough to really get to see it all, but at least to get a taste of life on the river.
Houses are built to withstand changes in the water level. The river can rise and fall several meters during the rainy season.
There are also floating markets. Most of what's available is fruits, vegetables and the like. This woman had apples on offer.
