From now to the end of the year, there will be four high tides with one tide every month in the Mekong Delta. Particularly, the first tidal spell will fall from September 18 to 21 (from the 2nd to 5th day of the 8th lunar month) and the next tides will fall on October 15 to 19, November 14 to 18 and December 13 to 17 respectively.
