With these canal cities, visitors will get the benefits of a coastal trip and a city vacation in one, said the Departures.
“Can Tho, located in Mekong Delta, is the very center of a massive system of canals and rivers. Each one is still a working network of merchants selling their goods at floating markets throughout the city. The most famous market, Cai Rang market, is both the largest and best way to find any souvenir you could ever dream of. But, if you’re looking to dig a little deeper into the local scene, try chartering a boat to take you on a tour of the lesser known allies and waterways throughout the city.”, wrote the magazine.
Vietnam has been ranked among the world’s 10 fastest-growing tourism destinations by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).
