Can Tho and Ben Tre are among the most famous sites in Mekong Delta with a variety of attractions, in which visitors will have a chance to explore the life along canals on the rowboat, visit the orchards and taste the tropical fruits along with specialties in the water areas, take part in many interesting activities like crocodile fishing, or discover many historical relics in the region, etc.

Can Tho attractions

Perhaps the most famous tourist spot in Can Tho is Cai Rang floating market - the largest one in Mekong Delta. Cai Rang features the region’s culture with boats full of goods, food, and tropical fruits. The market is open early and extremely crowded. Moreover, on a Can Tho tour, it will be a shortcoming if you don’t visit the orchard of My Khanh to taste the fresh fruits here.

For cultural and architectural exploration, Truc Lam Phuong Nam Monastery is a highlight in Can Tho that is the biggest one in southwest Vietnam, Also, Binh Thuy ancient house is a must-see place which owns the unique architecture and precious antiques. If you want to explore Can Tho nightlife, Can Tho bridge and Ninh Kieu port are very ideal for you. Looking towards Can Tho bridge, Ninh Kieu appeals to visitors with the hectic lifestyle of many restaurants, night market, etc.
