Gallery: Can Tho, Vietnam

Visitors to Vietnam usually travel through the country from north to south or vice versa. I arrived in the South and worked my way up, having arrived in Vietnam by bus via the land border with Cambodia.

My first stop was Can Tho, which is one of the biggest cities in Vietnam and famous for its floating market. I stayed in a homestay, which was a really great experience. The local family who ran it cooked an absolute feast for us – it was so delicious!

My stay in Can Tho was pretty short, but I enjoyed a boat ride through the floating market. This is where I tasted my first Vietnamese coffee – which I very quickly fell in love with – served from a lady in a boat which pulled up right next to ours. Here are some pictures…I hope you enjoy!
