Tourists visiting Can Tho have a choice of interesting tours where they can visit Cai Rang and Phong Dien floating markets; Au, Khuong, Son, Tan Loc and Cai Khe islets; fruit gardens; cruise along the river to experience the riverside lifestyle; enjoy local delicacies or the Don ca tai tu (Southern traditional amateur music) and much more.
The city has many green tourist areas such as My Khanh, Bang Lang Stork Sanctuary and Binh Thuy orchid garden. It is also a big religious tourist site with many pagodas and temples.
Can Tho has developed a strong and advantageous traffic system whereby tourists can travel by land, air or waterway. It has 17 entertainment areas, more than 200 hotels and thousands of restaurants.
Apart from the Hanoi-Can Tho air route, new air routes include Da Nang-Can Tho, Can Tho-Con Dao, Can Tho-Lien Khuong and many international routes to be launched in coming times to promote the city’s tourism.
