Travel firms in the Mekong province of An Giang are offering tours for visitors to experience the flood season between late July and mid-October.

"Though An Giang has entered its major flooding season, we go ahead with our tours," said Nguyen Phu Phuc, deputy director of An Giang Tourimex's tourism centre.

"Vinh Te Canal, Tra Su cajeput forest, and Chau Doc town are safe places for tourists."

At Vinh Te and Tra Su, visitors can catch fish and experience the lifestyle of locals during the annual floods.

In An Giang, the flood season is expected to last until November 20 this year./.
