Vietnam's Mekong Delta

( Jason La / Los Angeles Times ) Can Tho, about 100 miles southwest of Ho Chi Minh City, is the Mekong Delta's largest city. Picturesque and modern, the city is one of the region's most popular tourist destinations. But it's less touristy than Ho Chi Minh or Nha Trang, so its hotels and restaurants here are relatively inexpensive. Nice meals average $5 per person. Comfortable hotels cost about $30 a night.
