Overview

Can Tho is considered as capital of the Delta and is located in the very heart of the whole region. This bustling city, the largest in the region, has broad boulevards and an elegant waterfront which connects it to the rest of the Mekong Delta via a system of rivers and canals. A boat trip along these canals is the highlight of a trip to Can Tho. In addition, a visit to the nearby floating market early in the morning is a must.

Cai Rang Floating Market ( Can Tho)

 
Cai Rang is the largest floating market in the Mekong Delta and the best time to view it is early morning when it is at its liveliest, though some vendors can still be seen until noon.

Unlike the floating markets you may have seen in Thailand, where small wooden boats thread narrow canals, most floating markets here are on the banks of wide stretches of river and the Cai Rang market is no exception.

Binh Thuy Ancient House ( Can Tho)

 
The design of the ancient house is a combination of Vietnam and France with interesting involved stories but also a garden with various flowers and fruits, including a wide range of orchids and a record cactus

Binh Thuy Ancient House is the place the film L’Amant directed by J.J Annaud was shot.

Soc Trang

 
Khleng Pagoda, was originally built from bamboo in 1533, but had to be reconstructed completely at the turn of the last century. Khmer Museum is a modern-day cultural center, with exhibits devoted to the Khmer minority in Vietnam. Clay Pagoda, whose interiors were decorated entirely in clay sculptures 200 years ago by an eccentric monk, Ngo Kim Tong. Bat Pagoda, a large monastery which has been colonized by thousands of fruit bats.

The full day tour includes both of these attractions in addition to the ones above.

Every visit to the temple is accompanied by the eerie keening of the creatures. Xan Lon Pagoda, on the road to Ca Mau , built in traditional Khmer style and noted for its decorative ceramic tiles on its exterior. My Phuoc Island, a short boat ride away which is an isolated island filled with fruit orchards.
