Does your idea of a perfect getaway include floating pagodas, lush deltas and breakfast on a river? If it doesn’t now, it definitely will after a visit to Can Tho. This “Western capital” of Vietnam offers the best of the Mekong. You’ll have heaps of fun exploring this tropical city when you make your home base at one of our hotels in Can Tho.
Things to Do in Can Tho
Enjoy a lively shopping and eating experience for every meal at the floating markets of Cái Rang and Phong Dien, where you’ll find food vendors selling hot food, vibrant flowers and fresh fruit out of local boats. Spend some time on land near other Can Tho hotels, traversing Mau Than Street, the longest street on the delta. Browse the shops and watch the Buddhist monks go about their days in the community. Be sure to stop in at the Quang Duc Pagoda for a glimpse in to life at this busy temple.
Getting in & Around Can Tho
From Ho Chi Minh City—the capital of Vietnam—travel by express bus, motorbike, or car is fastest. Hire a taxi or take one of our hire car deals and hit the road to your Can Tho accommodation. Travel in the city is best by bicycle or motorbike, though wandering on foot is also a great way to find the unexpected. Take one of the ferries travelling up and down the river for unbeatable views at relaxing pace.
