MEKONG DELTA — Lotus has long been a special plant in Tháp Mười District of Đồng Tháp Province. The beautiful lotus ponds in the Mekong province have been a magnet for visitors to Đồng Tháp.
Sa Đéc is famous for its flower gardens, which give the city its title as the “Mekong Delta’s flower capital”. Besides the economic value the flowers offer, the gardens have also been developed into stunning tourism sites.
Tân Thuận Đông is an islet in the Tiền (Anterior Mekong) River in Cao Lãnh city. Vast gardens of fruits such as mango, orange and longan attract visitors, who come to sightsee and also get a first-hand experience of farmers’ lives.
The locality also offers recreational activities like folk singing and dancing and other cultural performances and unique foods, leaving visitors with unforgettable memories.
There are now more tours to Đồng Tháp, which offer trips to beautiful flower villages, orchards and lotus fields, turning the province into one of the tourism hubs of southern Việt Nam. — VNS
