The towering limestone karsts of Halong Bay, the small riverside towns and floating markets of the Mekong Delta and the isolated farming communities that surround the Red River - Vietnam presents an array of rewarding experiences on its waterways. Traditional junks with their billowing sails ply the waters around Halong Bay, while in the south converted rice barges provide the perfect vantage point from which to take in life along the river.
