2 Days in Can Tho City - The Great Saigon Escape

 2 Days in Can Tho City - The Great Saigon Escape

As the unofficial head of the Mekong Delta, the city of Can Tho is perfectly located in the centre of Vietnam’s deep south. Just 3.5 hours of driving separates it from Ho Chi Minh City, the former capital of South Vietnam and the site of some of Vietnam’s most dramatic wartime moments, as well as the country’s fastest development. While Saigon becomes increasingly recognised more for its electric pace of life, many of its local residents, expats and visitors are turning to travel destinations in its close surroundings.

For this, Can Tho provides a wonderful weekend or 48-hour retreat for the fatigued Saigonese locals. Below is a short itinerary idea for those looking to escape the hubbub of Vietnam’s second city and experience 2 days in Can Tho.

 

Day 1 – Arrive in Can Tho and Check out the History

After your morning transfer from Ho Chi Minh City you will arrive in Can Tho at about midday. Once checked into your hotel you can start your explorations of the city by arranging some lunch, which is a great opportunity to tuck into some of the delicious and unique street food found here. Try a plate of bánhcóng (savoury shrimp and green bean muffins) before heading to the first of yourCan Tho attractions.

Stretch your legs after the drive with a visit to NinhKieu, Can Tho’sriverside district and the location for its romantic promenade walk. The walk overlooks both the Hau River and Can Tho River, giving a great overview of the snaking waterways that forge their way throughout the Mekong region. Find the statue of Uncle Ho
