Things to Do at Can Tho

There are quite a lots of things to do at Can Tho. I will introduce you to some popular tours as well as new coming up tourism sites that I have researched and gone to during my trip

1ST DAY AT CAN THO

I got on the sleeper bus Phương Trang from Ho Chi Minh City to Can Tho (duration 3 hours) if you need help with booking Contact Us

EAT GRILLED SNEAK HEAD FISH

One of the specialty of Can Tho is “Cá Lóc” sneak head fish grill. I asked the locals and they recommended “Ăn Cá Lóc” restaurant. Fairly cheap, the whole grilled fish is about $7.

CON SON ISLAND

After that I went to Con Son Island. This is a small island at Can Tho about 5 km from downtown. You will have to take the boat to get there. This small island only have about 70 family households. They all have their own gardens which you can visit, and purchase some of the fruits for “local prices”. I went around Can Tho everything in Can Tho is very expensive, they go accordingly to US pricing so relatively not friendly for locals. But this is one of the places that rarely have any tourist at this point so it is still affordable.

NINH KIEU HABOUR

At night, I jogged around the Ninh Kieu Habour, get some night snack at the night market. My hotel is 5 mins walking distant to the habour so it is easier to do so.
