Can Tho City

Can Tho is the largest city in the region of Mekong Delta with specific cultural life which is mainly based on water. It is a buzzing town with an interesting, lively waterfront lined with the sculpted gardens, a harmonizing mixture between wide boulevards and narrow backstreets, and maybe the greatest concentration of international people in the Delta. Also, this place is the perfect base for those nearby floating markets, which are the main draw for travelers coming here to boat along many canals as well as rivers leading out of the city.

1. Cai Rang Floating Market

Only about 6km faway from Can Tho city, Cai Rang floating market is the biggest floating market in the Mekong Delta. A bridge here can serve as an ideal vantage point for taking photos. This market is most crowded from 6 am to 6 am. You should visit here early in order to beat the boatloads of travelers. Being a wholesale market, the market features with products tied to the long pole above the boats. These products also are what sold to the smaller traders.

2. Binh Thuy Ancient House

The house is situated on Bui Huu Nghia (Bùi Hữu Nghĩa) street, Binh Thuy (Bình Thuỷ) ward, Binh Thuy (Bình Thuỷ) District, Can Tho (Cần Thơ) city, designed with 5 small rooms and 2 roofs, featuring French colonial architecture. The establishment was built in 1870 by Duong (Dương) family.
