When rivers carry abundant sand and silt into a lake or sea, a triangular plain usually forms, which is called a delta. All of the world’s major rivers that flow into an ocean or sea have created large deltas with different forms and natural landscapes, which constitute a special type of delta tourism landscape. An example is the Danube River Delta, which has wide river channels, steady and smooth flows over river flats, and flocks of birds; these features create a tourism area formed by the river network.
