  1. Cai Rang Floating Market: This is one of the most popular and well-known markets in Can Tho. It is located on the Cai Rang River and is full of vendors selling a variety of goods. The bustling market, which can be found on one side of this riverbank located in the heart-land region known as “The Delta,” has been around since 17th century when it first started trading cotton fabric with other countries during French colonial times – now it’s just about everything!
  2. Binh Thuy Ancient House: This is a beautiful and well-preserved ancient house that was built in 1885. It is a great spot to learn about the history and culture of Can Tho. When you enter the grounds, visitors are greeted with both an informative placard and detailed map detailing all aspects of this historic site’s history as well their own culture’s place in it.
  3. Mekong River: The Mekong River is a great place to relax and take in the scenery. There are a number of tour companies that offer boat tours of the river. On a boat, you are free to explore the beautiful rivers of Asia. The Mekong River in particular has so much natural beauty that it would be hard not come away feeling refreshed after your trip! There is no shortage for companies offering tours on this amazing body of water- there’s even one just down stairs from where I’m typing right now (I’ll show myself out).
  4. Can Tho Museum: The Can Tho Museum is a great place to learn about the history and culture of this bustling metropolis. The museum has many exhibits that showcase what life was like in ancient times, as well as various social classes during French colonial rule with beautiful clothing styles you won’t want miss!
  5. Cuu Long (Nine Dragon) River: The Cuu Long (Nine Dragon) River is a great place to relax and take in the scenery. Though it may not be as long or wide compare with other rivers, this river has beautiful stone bridges that make you feel at peace when walking across them.
  6. Tay Do (Western Capital) Temple: Western Capital Temple is a popular spot for students taking exams. It’s also dedicated to the God of Literature and houses many famous monks who have been instrumental in our world’s knowledge, like Confucius or Buddha himself!
  7. Quang Duc Pagoda: The Quang Duc Pagoda is a tranquil and peaceful place to visit. Home of the large statue Buddha, this pagoda will leave you feeling at peace while offering an insight into ancient Vietnamese culture with its design elements such as lotus flowers or dragonfly wings adorning each corner facade.

I recently visited Can Tho and was amazed by the unique experience it offered. The floating markets were definitely the highlight of my trip, as I got to witness the locals’ way of life up close. The city’s rich cultural heritage was also evident in the many pagodas and temples, and the Can Tho Museum was a great place to learn more about the region’s history. I would highly recommend this charming city to anyone looking for an authentic Vietnam experience.

When I was there, I missed out on so much. I wish I had a guide like this!!
I am sure I will go again. Can Tho might be my most favorite place. Since I have family there, I know I will be going back.

I like to think of Can Tho as the capital city of the Mekong Delta. It’s a great place to explore the waterways and enjoy some of the finest seafood in Vietnam. I like to start off with a bike tour around town, then get lost in the markets and try all sorts of delicious snacks. If you’re looking for something less urban, it’s got plenty of riverside parks as well.

I only passed through the area once and I wish I had stayed longer. I was on a tight schedule for my trip. I plan on making a point of giving myself a few days to explore the city next time. It is beautiful!

I have been to Can Tho, and I think it’s a really beautiful city. It’s one of those places that has so much to offer, but it’s not overrun by tourists. I think it’s worth a visit!
