Can Tho is located on the right bank of Hau River, in Mekong Delta, one of the five cities under the Central Government of Vietnam. Can Tho was known as “Tay Do” (capital of the West) a long time ago. Can Tho is famous for places like Ninh Kieu wharf, Can Tho bridge (the largest and longest bridge in Vietnam) ….
In addition to geographical features, it is an important transport hub between provinces in Mekong Delta region. Can Tho is like “an urban of the river”. The system of rivers is interlaced, vast orchards and vast fields. Islets such as Tan Loc, Con Son, Con Khuong , Con Au, etc. floating on Hau River are very unique to develop water tourism.
First, tourists visiting Ninh Kieu Park can find a variety of precious ornamental plants, beautiful flowers stretching from Cai Khe canal to the ancient market that has just been restored. Ninh Kieu wharf is the intersection of Hau and Can Tho rivers. After bobbing on the meandering river with busy canoes, visitors visit Cai Rang Floating Market – a river trading market with a feature of the Southern culture.
In the early morning, hundreds of boats gather into a market on a river. The market sells all kinds of horticultural products hanging on a pole in front of the boat called “beo tree”. Buyers only need to look at the “beo tree” to know what the boat sells. In addition to visiting, buying fresh products, visitors have the opportunity to talk closely with people called “people loving the lake”. All year round, they take water, rivers, lakes as their companions. Next, visitors crept along the canals in the green islet in the Can Tho such as Con Khuong, Con Au …
In Can Tho, in the last 2 years, Sau Hoai eco-tourism garden has emerged as an example for this type of tourism. Coming here, visitors can both enjoy the fresh countryside atmosphere, visit the orchard, learn about the profession of making noodles and enjoy the quite strange dishes made from it.
