Learning Journey to Mekong Delta
Can Tho via Ho Chi Minh City
Where Culture Meets Adventure
Thursday-Sunday, 18-21 July 2019
(4 Days, 3 Nights)
WELCOME TO CAN THO
The epicentre of the Mekong Delta, Can Tho is the largest city in the region. As the political, economic, cultural and transportation centre of the Mekong Delta, it’s a buzzing town with a lively waterfront lined with sculpted gardens, an appealing blend of narrow backstreets and wide boulevards, and perhaps the greatest concentration of foreigners in the delta. It is also the perfect base for nearby floating markets, the major draw for tourists who come here to boat along the many canals and rivers leading out of town.
