Ecotourism and river tourism in Can Tho and in the Mekong Delta have gradually lured a large number of domestic and international tourists.

The number of tourists to Can Tho has been increasing since the launch of flights between Can Tho and some regions in the country. In 2014, Can Tho welcomed more than 1.3 million tourist arrivals and tourism receipts reached over VND 1,100 billion.

In recent years, ecotourism spots in Phong Dien, a charming countryside with lush orchards, are always selected by tourists to Can Tho. Tourists feel more interesting when they start a boat trip from Ninh Kieu Wharf to Can Tho old market, Cai Rang floating market… to experience the beauty of the region and crowded moments of trading activities on the river.

According to Director of Tourism and Trade Promotion Center of Phong Dien District Vo Thanh Giup, the locality focuses on promoting tourism, improving the quality of  tourist sites, building models of community tourism, responsible tourism to highlight Phong Dien tourism. Currently, My Khanh Tourist Village and Truc Lam Phuong Nam Zen Monastery are the among most popular tourist destinations.

Located in the heart of the Mekong Delta, with a dense system of rivers, canals and orchard laden with  fruits, Can Tho has favourable conditions for development of ecotourism and river tourism. Deputy Director of Can Tho's Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Le Minh Son informed thanks to the right investment, the city’s tourism achieved positive results in terms of development of typical tourism products, and tourism branding. In the coming time, Can Tho tourism will focus on investing in typical tourism products, upgrading Cai Rang floating market and effectively exploiting river tourism routes.
