>>> About CAN THO

A Can Tho Mekong Delta Tour gives you a truly varied taste of the region. Can Tho is the biggest city in the area, and one of Vietnam’s top 5! For those of you who have experienced other major cities in the country, you’ll really appreciate the slower pace of life here. Although after the peacefulness of the Mekong’s river systems, villages and fields, Can Tho will feel positively bustling!

Make sure to experience the night markets and riverfront, which has a great selection of eateries. It’s also a wonderful place to spend some quiet time and take a romantic stroll with your loved one.
