CAN THO - VIETNAM

Being the capital of the Mekong delta of Vietnam, Can Tho is a thriving metropolis with huge streets, little action and loads of mosquitoes. Although Can Tho has its own market by the riverside, where you can get excellent ice-cream, the principal attraction would have to be the nearby floating markets.

Being rather industrious, the centre of Can Tho is quite busy and noisy with motorized cyclos roaring up and down the streets combined with throngs of people going about their lives. The riverside can have its quiet moments, but Can Tho also has a number of pagodas worth visiting, and for the trivial fans, Can Tho is the home to much of Vietnam’s fish sauce. In spite of being a prime urban area, Can Tho’s picturesque location in the midst of meandering rivers is what makes it a haven for tourism. Whether it be canal tours, the floating markets, the nearby villages, parks and other prominent attractions, the city offers plenty. Cai Rang floating market is situated about 8 km from Can Tho by road or a 20 km loop by boat. This market is quite nice and sells a variety of fruit and vegetables and operates from 5 am to 11 am, though the markets are better the earlier you can get there. A cyclo from Can Tho will take about 15 minutes to get to Cai Rang Market. Another market, Phung Hiep market, is 31 km from Can Tho. This is the snake market, selling a plethora of living, wriggling and often poisonous snakes. Pythons and Cobras are sold here by people from the countryside who have caught them by hand, whilst others have come to purchase snakes for restaurants, medicinal reasons or personal consumption. This market is open from 5 am to 5 pm. If travelling by boat, you can add a dimension to your day by stopping and visiting some of the fruit gardens, which sell pineapple, rambutan and papaya amongst many other fruits.

Some of the major tourist attractions in Can Tho, Vietnam, are:
Floating Markets in Can Tho
These are one of the distinctive features of this district and are of great interest to the tourists. Some of the most frequented floating markets in this area are Cai Be, Cai Rang, Phung Hiep, Phong Dien, Nga Nam and Long Xuyen. Of these the Cai Rang Floating Market is the most popular one. Apart from providing a lovely view of the busting activities, these markets are a great place to hangout as they have lots of floating restaurants also.

Tourist Gardens in Can Tho
There are several riverside gardens all over Can Tho like My Khanh, San Duong, Ba Lang and Tan Binh. These gardens give a closer view of the flora and fauna of this place.

One Pagoda in Can Tho
Situated right at the centre of the city, on Hai Ba Trung Road, near the Ninh Kieu Wharf, the Ong Pagoda is the place for all Chinese cultural and religious activities in Can Tho, Vietnam. Its colorful Chinese architecture is of special interest.

Ninh Kieu Wharf
This is the heart of all industrial activities in Can Tho. Positioned on the bank of Hau River, it has a number of floating restaurants. Can Tho City Museum: Situated on Phan Dinh Phung Street in Can Tho this museum provides an overview of the native history, culture, customs and traditions.

Army Museum
Situated on Hoa Binh just opposite to the City Museum, this Museum exhibits weapons, maps, photographs and other items from the Vietnamese War. It gives an idea of Vietnam’s long fight to freedom.
