The Mekong delta is only a couple of hours drive from Saigon and a nice place to visit for a day or two when you are in Saigon and feel the need of some clean air.
The delta has a lot of islands and you can easily navigate around there by boat.
The people who live in the delta makes a living from fishing and farming mainly, but tourism is also becoming a growing economic factor there.
Yuo can visit the delta as part of a tour that you can easily buy in Saigon or you can go there on your own by bus or with your own vehicle if you have one.
After a couple of days of Saigon this is really a good idea.
