Photographer's Note

During a short trip to Ho Chi Minh City,in 2007, I had a one day visit to the Mekong Delta (which included My Tho and Ben Tre).

This photo was taken on a boat trip through the creeks of Thoi Son Island. The tour guide even sang traditional Vietnamese songs - at no extra cost!

Thoi Son Island is located in the Chau Thanh District of Tien Giang Province.

It is a 45-minute boat ride on the Mekong River from Mytho City.

It has been a tourist resort since 1990.

The paths through the island are bordered with fruit trees bearing plums, mangoes, and longans.
