Pro Tips:

Bring your hat, sunglasses, and sunblock, scarf to wear when visiting temples, pagodas, and the cathedral.

If you plan to extend your stay in the homestay, do not forget to bring mosquito repellent cream.

When visiting the Can Tho city or doing any customized tours, choose reputable providers and boats equipped with lifebuoys and jackets. Safety is a priority!

Can Tho is magnificent itself, but if you have enough time, don’t forget to put other places onto your bucket lists such as rice fields, Gian Gua heritage tree, Bang Lang stork garden, Binh Thuy ancient house, Can Tho wildlife & forest

Bring the raincoat if you travel to Can Tho in the rainy season, as Can Tho always looks fantastic in the full rain and full sun.

Hopefully, the above tips will help you to come up with a great plan for your adventure in Can Tho, Vietnam. Have a safe trip!
