See the epicenter of the Mekong Delta at Can Tho on this 2 day trip to the largest city in the region. Can Tho feels like a veritable metropolis after a few days exploring the backwaters. It is a buzzing town with a lively waterfront and an appealing blend of narrow backstreets and wide boulevards that make for some rewarding exploration. Also, it is the perfect base for nearby floating markets, the major draw for tourists who come here to boat along the canals.

    The first day of the trip was good, but the homestay we were in was infested with rats. We were woken in the middle of the night by a rat INSIDE our mosquito net and got no further sleep. The lady in the next cabin had a similar problem with rats running round the walls, which we could also see in our cabin. We told our tour guide who apologised, but it was by far the most unpleasant experience we have ever had on a holiday.
