Located at the heart of the Mekong Delta. Can Tho is a lively, colorful and dynamic city. One of the most interesting activities and attractions in the Mekong Delta river region is an early-morning visit to one of the floating markets. Far from being an event created for tourists, the floating markets make up a daily part of life on the river and have done for centuries.
Due to the closer proximity to both Saigon and the city, the markets around Can Tho are larger and receive a much higher number of travelers visiting.
Receiving valuable nutrients from the upper Mekong, Can Tho is a very rich and lush area, covered with rice fields, fruit orchards, fish and vegetable farms. In addition, travelers will be able todiscover the mighty riverbank, see several typical and traditional industry and handicraft workshops in the region.
