I finally climbed into a skinny sampan boat and… yes… was handed a conical hat to put on my head. I was expecting to enjoy it, but, seeing as how it came towards the end of our tour and we'd already had so many amazing adventures — from an overnight cruise at Ha Long Bay to cycling through the countryside to getting custom-tailored clothing made in Hoi An — that I wasn't sure Vietnam could possibly top itself. The Mekong Delta is a region in southwestern Vietnam where the mighty Mekong River, a river that runs through six different countries in Southeast Asia, empties out into the sea. The Delta is an incredibly interesting and important region, covering more than 15, square miles. It's biologically diverse, with over 1, different animal species. It's the agricultural heart of southern Vietnam. We boarded a boat, and began navigating down the Mekong River, learning about how important its waters are to this part of the world.
The lack of access to sanitation disproportionately affects women and girls, who face numerous adverse health effects and safety risks as a result. Many rural families in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam use hanging latrines, a method that commonly filters human waste into nearby water sources. These latrines cause health and environmental risks for rural communities and expose women and children to safety risks.
Most foreign veterans who arrive in this swampy stretch of the Mekong Delta make their way to the Oasis Hotel. The two-story, pale-yellow building on the Ben Tre River boasts a small pool near the open-air dining area and cold beer. They come looking for solace, something stronger than the support groups and pills. Then they meet Ken Horsfall.
