At a staggering 4,350km in length, the mighty Mekong River is the 12th longest river in the world. Beginning in Tibet, it carves its way through Southeast Asia, passing through the likes of Laos and Cambodia, before finally reaching the Mekong Delta’s narrow river network in Southern Vietnam. Millions of locals’ livelihoods depend on the Mekong, relying on it for fishing, agriculture, its iconic floating markets and it often being the sole access to their riverside houses and remote island villages. Home to an abundance of wildlife, it’s the second most biologically diverse river in the world after the Amazon.
