Family Holiday

Customer Travel Tip: You can often get boat trips to see the floating markets much cheaper if you bargain directly with boat owners along the river. Four of us went on a 7 hour, two market, small canal, rice paper factory, garden tour for a total of $23. Our friend bargained hard but the boat owner seemed very happy and was a fantastic guide!

Liked: The Meekong Delta is a magical place! The locals of Can Tho are extremely friendly! The lack of tuktuks makes life much more peaceful!

Disliked: Public transport is very limited.

Customer Travel Tip: Locals are very helpful.

Liked: People very friendly. Not many tourists about, so if you're looking for a tourist area, maybe this place isn't for you. Nice fishing port, and there is a floating market which we didn't get time to visit.

Disliked: Nothing
