Sampan in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam

Mekong Delta Sampan

On a trip to Vietnam I took a ride on a sampan in the Mekong Delta. A Sampan is flat Chinese wooden boat prominently used by local residents in the Mekong Delta as a means of transportation. The Mekong Delta is close to Ho Chi Minh City also known as Saigon. Life in the Mekong Delta is centered around the river with sampans used as floating markets for residents to visit and purchase fresh fruit and vegetables or to get around to visit different areas of the Mekong Delta.
