Can Tho is a picturesque, densely populated city located on Vietnam’s Mekong Delta. The city is served by Can Tho International Airport
, which operates as a major regional hub with some international terminals. There are several hotels located near the airport, ranging in size and accommodation to suit most travelers.
As this city is sitting on the banks of the famous Mekong, a trip to Can Tho would be incomplete without visiting one of the famous floating markets of the area such as Cai Rang Floating Market
. A floating market is a great way to enjoy a lazy cruise along the river while browsing merchant boats offering everything from scarves to handmade trinkets. Most hotels will help arrange a floating market trip, and visitors often enjoy getting a chance to take part in this quintessential activity.
As much of Vietnam, Can Tho is home to many Buddhist temples and Pagodas, such as Munirangsyaram Pagoda
as well as churches built in beautiful French colonial style. Spend a day exploring these places of worship as they offer a chance to experience some of the local culture and brush up on the history of the region.
