"No 2 Rice Exporter in the World!" Vietnam Off The Beaten Path Tip by jeffmorg
Vietnam Off The Beaten Path: 159 reviews and 183 photos
Viet Nam is one of the original centres of rice cultivation, but surplus rice production was achieved only after the taming of the vast Mekong River Delta about 300 years ago. Viet Nam has been the world's second largest rice exporter since the mid-1990s, but rice farmers are still poor due to low rice prices. Diversification of the intensive rice system has been promoted to improve farmers' livelihoods. I took this photo throught the window of the van near Hue City.
