Vinh Long is a Co Chien River (Mekong Delta) cruise port and city (capital of Vietnam's Vĩnh Long Province) with land area approx 48 km2 (30 mi2) and population around 150,000.
Co Chien River (a tributary of Mekong River) is approx 10 km (6 mi) upstream. Across the river are located two islands (An Binh and Bình Hoa Phưoc), approx 15 km (9 mi) across, and the Mekong is on the opposite side. Several canals (crossed by vehicular bridges) run through downtown. City transportation also includes boats, but at low tide both islands become unreachable. Among the best-known tourist attractions is the outdoor market lined up with stalls selling mainly fresh fruits (mangos, plums, milk apples).
