Can Tho

Can Tho is the biggest and wealthiest of the Mekong Delta cities and the commercial hub for the tremendous agricultural output of the region. It's a less compelling destination for travellers however, than some of the smaller delta towns. Can Tho's main attraction is Cai Rang floating market six kilometres away. Cai Rang is the Mekong Delta's largest floating market and an amazing early morning spectacle of traditional boats of all sizes packed with exotic fruits and other local produce for trade. If you're travelling extensively through the Mekong, don't miss it.
