Description

At Phnompenh, the Mekong splits into two main branches: the HauGiang (Tonle Bassac) which flows via ChauDoc, LongXuyen and CanTho to the sea; and the TienGiang (Tonle Mekong) which splits into several branches at VinhLong and empties into the sea at six points. The Mekong river cruise from Phnompenh to ChauDoc, Cantho and onto Saigon will be a good choice to explore the delta region.
