8. Responsible Travel and Advice to Do any Fruit Garden Tour

Don’t get us wrong. But we assure you that you totally agree with us. “Do not give candy and things to the children when you plan to visit any local villages”, the kids will leave the school and follow the sweetie stuff and later they find some things to give you or sell to you. The garden is a little forest, don’t pick and touch the flowers or fruits without the local’s smiles. We deal to travel green and leave green behind, not plastic. Top tip: Can Tho River Tour and Vemekong.com are some of the companies that care a lot about responsible travel and local respectation.

Pro tips:

Bring your hat, sunglasses, and sunblock.

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…

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!

Best Rice Field in Mekong Delta

As Mekong Delta build up over the years, they get formed in the shape of a triangle and the deposits in this formation are of rich alluvium, which are ideally suited for growing wet rice. Biking and walking around the green or saffron yellow rice fields and learning deeply about the “white gold” in Vietnam are fantastic and educational experiences.
