The only city to be administered by the country, Can Tho City is pretty much the urban face of the Mekong Delta Region. The living standards in Can Tho City will impress tourists as of the extent to which the rural Mekong Delta has developed and her urbanity is a take-off from the float market economy. With that being said, one should expect to experience modern city life when coming to Can Tho City.

On the other hand, the city never fails to preserve its traditional lifestyle, registering the float market as one of its main attractions and holding celebrations for traditional holidays. Beside that, the regional government takes good care of natural attractions such as the creek parks, allowing spaces for enormous ecotourist destinations.
