When it comes to Can Tho, most people are familiar with the famous verse:”Can Tho, white rice, pure water - All who come wish never to leave”. Being well-known as Tay Do or the capital of the Mekong Delta, Can Tho leaves an impression of the poetic beauty, the local people’s hospitality and the unique local cuisine. Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, Can Tho is a perfect destination for those who want to immerse themselves in nature. Here are three Can Tho famous destinations that should not be missed!
1. Sunrise at Cai Rang floating market
Enjoying the glamorous and charming sunrise at Cai Rang floating market - the most iconic floating market not only in Mekong Delta but also in Vietnam, that’s all for a fantastic day, isn’t it? You would be amazed by its extremely vivid and crowd-trading atmosphere the first time you come here. Opening early in the morning, Cai Rang sells mostly agricultural products like fresh fruits and vegetables, breakfast and daily essential household goods. Interestingly, even in the midst of such a hectic trading scene, you will still somehow find comfortable moments when immersed in the rural lifestyle of the locals and breathing in the cool breeze of the great river.

2. Explore Ninh Kieu Wharf
Located next to the gentle, poetic Hau River, Ninh Kieu Wharf is a must-see wonder and a symbol of Can Tho city. It was established in the nineteenth century and has long been developed into Ninh Kieu Park, which has an area of 7000 square meters. Because of the lighting system and bustling crowd, the park is even more stunning and charming at night. In the park, trees are carefully trimmed, and beautiful green lawns beneath the white bricks. Walking around the park, you can feel the cool, fresh breezes that bring a sense of refreshment and relaxation.
