Can Tho is a good place for a leisurely stay. There are not a lot of options for the more active traveler, but it is a good place to relax and take in the culture of Vietnam and also life around the Mekong Delta.
Great little eating places down near the Esplanade and good night markets. Spent the day at the early morning floating markets which was our highlight.
The city is pretty big and has a lot of restaurants, cafes and night life. But the best part of Mekong Delta is always in the countryside.
there is nothing much you can do in this town if you are looking for nightlife and partying. also there are no convienent stores in the whole town
A bit far from the District 1 and Phạm Ngũ Lão neighbourhood. Room was very spacious and clean. Breakfast was limited to 1 dish per person from a few selections and selected soups were not very good.
Unfortunately the staff did not understand English very well but they were very nice and friendly non the less. The neighbourhood was safe and quiet.
This to us seemed a normal city as opposed to being a real tourist area. However as more people travel and it comes more on to the tourist map we are sure it will become more and more geared toward tourist needs.
We had a welcome everywhere we went. Our tour guide for our cruise on the Delta was called 'Phi'. He was very good and gave us a marvellous day out visiting the floating markets, noodle factory, a farm and gave us lots of information without bombarding us giving us time to take it all in and not rushing us at all. We could not have had a better guide. We were only passing through so only had a short stay but we really enjoyed it.I am sure we will visit again one day.
Fun city with things to do like floating markets, tourist resort called My Khanh with lots of things to do that will take several hours.
I actually like the resort area better than the markets. Sight seeing of scooter. Swimming pool. As in most cities, people were very nice.
Can Tho is great for seeing the floating markets, rice fields, agricultural sights, canals and waterways.
Good boat trip, some pleasant restaurants, but not that much to recommend it. Enjoyed our two night stay though
Short stay for us. Good experience on the river. Loved the noodle factory and the fruit farm. The 4 hour river tour was plenty of time for us.
Guide that this hotel arranged was awesome!
i did not travel much of the city, but i feel very relaxing during the trip by visiting flooding market and try out local foods, visited some shopping center and shopping distract, visited some temple and pick fruit from farm by cancel due to rain.
Can Tho is the 4th biggest city in Vietnam. The city is in the south of Vietnam. The city is nice with diversified kinds of food and local culture.
Can Tho is a small but interesting town. Shopping is relatively good for the small town. Food are good.
A lot of good restaurant around the town. But english might be a problem cause very little people speak decent english
Nothing much in Can Tho except for the floating market...compare to HCM, limited number of local who can speak English although they are very friendly and seems helpful.
The only reason to go to this area is to see the Mekong Delta and the real floating markets. Otherwise this is a rural area and not an area that caters for a lot of tourism.
Eating outlets are hard to find and english is very poor.
can tho is a very beautiful city, the price here is cheap and reasonable. people here are very friendly and ready to help.
Nice little city, I think it's good for shorter visits rather than longer due to small amount to explore.
not so much things to do in Can Tho but you can full fill you 2 days trips with: Cai Rang floating market, fruit farm, home stay with the farmer, crane park (60 km from CanTHo)
I went to Can Tho around Feb and Mar. the breeze were so pleasant in the morning and late afternoon it was so relaxing, flooding market and the river front are some great place to visit.
There is a lot to do around here so I would think a bare minimum 2 days, get yourself a boat tour guide and head out for half a day, you good to this twice and still not see it all.
Market area has been changed recently and the city was busy of TET, so we were lucky to see all of that as a bonus. Great food to be had every where.
I only went there for business...honestly speaking there is not much to do in this city for leisure..
.most of hotels have a tour of the market on the river riding a boat right from early morning and it looked interesting...
City of Can Tho, thought not as busy as Ho CHi Minh, the street are well kept and clean. Good for stroll along the river bank where we stayed and the night market just round the corner.
Cantho is an attractive town, nice wide tree lined streets. lovely boulevard along the riverfront. very laid back and very friendly people.
There is not much to see in Can Tho aside from the floating markets. Make sure you get there by sunrise, it's worth the inconvenience.
There are many locals with boats lining the streets before sunrise and will take you both ways for about $10USD. Aside from that, not much to see. Don't expect a very warm welcome from the locals- they don't seem to enjoy tourists being in Can Tho and no one speaks English or seems interested in your business. We felt like we were being looked at as an oddity or an inconvenience, so don't take it personally.
We did not spent time in town and what we have seen is nothing different to any other towns in Vietnam, personally I would not like to stay in towns anyway and rather find a place away from crowds and noise
Can Tho is a lovely city. However, the river is so polluted that causes the uncomfort to the tourists while taking the boat tour.
Hope that the environment protection will be better in the coming time.
We only spend on night here. Got a tour for the local college students of the town on the back of their motor bikes.
In return we bought them dinner. Early the next morning we got a boat tour of the floating markets and rice noodle factory which was a great time.
Overall still ok with the short stay there, but theres no speciality for this place except the floating market.
People here is quite friendly and helpful, especially the xe om, although there only understand limited english, but they tried their best to help out. Theres a food stall at phan ding phung street selling nice dimsum like banh mi in the morning, around 10mins westward walk from the boat station to the floating market.
Ninh Kieu Quay of Can Tho is quieter, cleaner, cooler and lesser traffic than HoChiMinh City (Saigon).
However, there are lesser tourist attraction in Can Tho compared to other cities up North
A big bustling provincial centre that is ideal as a base for continued exploration of the mekong delta
