The locals seldom call this area the Mekong Delta. It is known here as Cuu Long -- the Nine Dragons. The Mekong River splits into nine channels as it enters the delta -- resembling dragons in shape. The delta land is interwoven with a complex system of small canals and dykes which facilitate agriculture, transportation and habitation (the area is home to many millions of people).
