Can Tho Overview
Can Tho is the largest city in the Mekong Delta, where all of the economic and cultural activities are closely liked to the rivers and canals. The inhabitant of this city and the surrounding area use the water as a street for everything they do, and due to the sight of every activity happening on the water Can Tho is famous for its Floating Market. Many boats flock together, and on these boats, people transport their goods from one place to another, while passing by other boats with quick stops for selling and buying of other goods, a truly magnificent sight of tradition and culture which can only be found at the Mekong. But Can Tho as much more to offer than just the life on the water, the gardens, especially the bird garden, the narrow streets in the back streets of the city, impressive boulevards, restaurants, temples and pagodas really create an authentic Vietnamese atmosphere that add to the experience of Can Tho.
