|Meandering on the Mekong ...|
One area that concerns me though is the Mekong Delta. I spent a day exploring it on various kinds of boats (progressively getting smaller!) while I was staying in Ho Chi Minh City. It was a great day out and I saw how the local communities rely on all the various bits of the river (and how they manage not to get lost in all the crossovers of water - I would!), but I wonder how it looks these days. With China upstream doing all kinds of not-so-natural stuff to the Mekong (including building lots of dams) there is no doubt that the Vietnamese end of it has also been affected.
