About Can Tho

Your journey to explore the "Capital of the West" will not be fulfilled without visiting the colorful southern orchards, touring Phong Dien, Cai Rang floating markets in the early morning or looking for old houses covered in moss and unique Khmer pagodas.

Best Time To Visit Can Tho

With its pleasantly warm and mild weather, Can Tho is an all-year-round travel destination. Every season has its own beauty. From June to August, it is the time when fruits are ripe, fresh and sweet. From September to November, the water rises slowly not rushing in the fields. Water lilies and sesbania sesban flowers are in full bloom.


The distance from Ho Chi Minh City to Can Tho is approximately 170 km. Travelling by bus, taxi or your own vehicles will take you 3 - 4 hours. Daily flights from Hanoi and HCMC to Can Tho are extremely convenient, saving you about 1-2 hours of moving.
