Can Tho

Can Tho, which can be called “Western Capital” of Viet Nam, is situated in the center of Mekong Delta, near by the Hau river. With the population of nearly 1.2 million and good infrastructure as well as investment for development, Can Tho is considered as the central city of this region.

The weather in Can Tho is divided into two seasons: wet season from May to November and dry season from December to April. During the wet season, the tide is usually high and there can be rain and flood on the street. During the dry season, the air is cooler; this is a good time to visit Can Tho city.

Ninh Kieu dock is a must-see destination where you can take a walk along the Hau riverside and feel the smell of alluvial soil of Mekong Delta. From here, you can rent a boat to visit Floating Market and fruit garden with the price under 20 USD. A suggestion for an ideal plan is visiting the Floating Market in the early morning, then come to fruit garden or “Phù Sa” (Alluvial) ecological zone to enjoy the tropical air; if you still have energy, take a walk around the city to see some street lights and the night market on Nguyen Thai Hoc street. Besides, Can Tho museum and Khmer pagoda (on Dai Lo Hoa Binh street) are worth visiting. There is also a lake inside the city called “Xáng Thổi” where you should come at night to eat barbecue and drink some beer.  Riding across newly Can Tho bridge is also interesting, from here, you will have an overview of Can Tho city.

Are you a real traveler? You shouldn’t miss any street foods in Can Tho such as grilled- chicken leg, dry-beef with papaya salad, sticky rice with chicken, many kinds of scallop, soya milk, grilled corn,… Each of them with different taste may make you be addicted.

Can Tho's Floating Markets

If you have found your way to Mekong Delta, you cannot afford to miss floating markets or “Cho Noi". This type of market can be found in most provinces of Mekong and some big and famous floating markets are Cai Rang, Phong Dien (CanTho City), Nga Nam (Soc Trang) , Nga Bay (Hau Giang). Floating markets have existed for a long time in the region. It basically is a market where people sell and buy things above water.

Since rivers are the main way of transportation, ferries and boats are very popular for traveling and transporting. Gradually, people gathered together at one or some certain places on the river to sell fruits mostly picked from their own gardens. Then they made business by selling foods, goods which had been brought from other places.

A floating market usually starts at 4 or 5 in the morning before dawn and ends when the sun raises high at 9 or 10am. Fruits and vegetables such as pineapple, dragon fruit, water melon, yam, and cabbage are the dominant goods at this floating market. Besides, you can also find garden tools, crafts and Vietnamese breakfast like rice noodle “Bun” or “Hu Tieu”.  It is very interesting to try to manage the chopstick and soup bowl while paddling along the river.

Another noticeable feature of the floating market is “Cay Beo”. This is a small pillar which is put in front of every boat. What can be bought from the boat will be hung on the small pillar as a notice sign. Of course they cannot hang on a bowl of noodle; therefore, if you want to eat, you should look for the smoke and the delicious smell.

TESTIMONIAL
  • I spent my 05 holidays in Hanoi and Halong Bay with Vietpremier service. It was a memorable trip for me and my friends. Not only the professional service, but also the intelligent tour arrangement and seasoned tour guide make us feel highly comfortable, minus the cost for us but still bring the best service. This impressed trip made me miss all about the person, scenery, lifestyle and I’m really want to be there again. Those are unforgettable holidays with me and my friends. I’m so excited with my next trip with Vietpremier J

  • Phung and our guides responded perfectly to our needs. We were tired after the train journey and so the only part of the itinerary we would change would have been to just spend the afternoon by the pool at the resort rather than taking a tour of the Hoi An sites
  • Mrs. Lisa Marie Behan and our family

  • Mr Liem was a wonderful guide he was professional but still showed a good sense of humour. We would never have been able to cross the roads without his help. Your design and management of our trip were excellent. I just realised that I hadn’t given feedback on the meal in the Mekong on the first day – this was at the house on the Mekong river, this was very remiss of me as although all meals were excellent this one was exceptional and the best we had for the entire trip, I should also have mentioned that the guide (a lady) we had on the Mekong cruise was excellent.
  • Ms. Jennifer Grace Agustin & Friends

  • A very well designed tour. We were very thankful to have contacted you and felt that your arrangements for us made everything a lot easier. Mr. Trang He was a fabulous guide who was quite knowledgeable about everything. We really felt like he made our trip even more enjoyable. His English is also extremely good and he tries hard to accommodate. Our favorite was Phu Quoc but we also really enjoyed our tour of the Mekong Delta though didn’t need two nights in Can Tho because there isn’t much to do in the city. Maybe should have done one night on a boat in hindsight but wasn’t sure we would like that.
