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.

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.
