This transformation is characterized by an increased reliance on land-based transportation and the implementation of advanced agricultural techniques that are now prevalent. In this locale, you will have the chance to observe the remarkable diversity of the region and the abundant fertility of the orchard gardens, which have earned it the distinction of being the preeminent source of fruit in the lower reaches of the Mekong River.
