Can Tho is the main city of the Mekong Delta, the nine dragon river delta, where the Mekong River empties into the South China Sea. As the political, economic, cultural and transportation center 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's 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. Even though it's quite big, there is a very compact central area where numerous hotels, markets and restaurants can be found. Similar to other Vietnamese cities in the Delta, the central area (along Hai Ba Trung street) really comes alive after the sun goes down.
