The Mekong Delta region of Vietnam is unlike any other in the country. With mainly waterways cutting through large islands people here get around by boat, motorbike, car, bus, and canoes. It is also a very relaxing place to escape to when you are tired of the hustle of Saigon. The pace of life is slower here. But still industrious.

The following set of photographs were made in June of 2014 while on assignment for a new motorbike tour company. The trip was created by my good friend Trinh Tien Trung, Vietnam’s top film fixer and all around lover of riding motorbikes out into strange and wonderful places.
