The Mekong Delta offers the Vietnamese people constant flow of waters for their fish, rice, fruit, coconut, and vegetable farms. Originating from Tibet, it traverses through six countries: China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. 

The river, measuring about 25,000 square miles, crosses the border of Cambodia and divides into many outlets, popularly described by locals as Cuu Long or the Nine Dragons.

These nine dragons seem to spew waters forming a huge fertile rivers, from where the Vietnamese folks derive their family food and fund.
