The Mekong Delta is where the Mekong River flows into the sea through a maze of side rivers. It is the most fertile region in Vietnam and the relative small area manage to produce half of Vietnam's rice production along with a overwhelming range of vegetables and exotic fruits. The markets in Mekong are therefor packed with colorful fruits like rambutan, dragon fruit, mangosteen and of course the smelly pointy durian. But the people in the Mekong are also known for their taste for, well, pretty much anything. Frogs, snails, turtles, rats, snakes, scorpions, you name it. If they can catch it, they eat it. So the local market in the trading town of Vinh Long can have the feeling of a zoo but don't be fooled, everything here is for consumption.
