Can Tho is a place to get a feel for the "real" Vietnam. As the largest city in the Mekong Delta, it has so much to offer: you can visit some Buddhist pagodas to learn about its rich history, boat along the picturesque rural canals to enjoy the beauty of the Mekong Delta, drop by a rice paper-making village to know its time-honored tradition, stop over bustling floating markets to witness local people selling and buying things on the river and wander the quiet backstreets to shop numerous authentic stores or try delicious local foods. Don't miss the fresh tropical fruits like jackfruit and mango.
Can Tho retains its rural charm, though it develops fast as the political, economic, cultural and transportation center of the Mekong Delta. You can experience local culture and life in a relaxing way here, especially in the Xuan Khanh Quarter, the center of the city, and the Cai Rang Floating Market, the main wholesale floating market nearby.
Traveling to Can Tho is like a real-life cultural experience. Are you ready to go?
