One of the biggest and most active Buddhist temples is Quang Duc Pagoda, located on Mau Than Street, where monks live and visitors are welcome. Also worth visiting is the newer Buu Tri Pagoda on Mau Than Street and the Khmer Pagoda of Munirangsyaram on Hoa Bình street. Mau Than Street is the longest street in the Mekong Delta and central street in Can Tho. Aside from the more touristy floating market area, this street has some of the best opportunities for local shopping and dining.

The floating markets are one of the most unique attractions of Can Tho. Cai Rang is the main wholesale floating market, and can only be reached by boat.

Floating market tours are available for visitors who wish to have a more guided experience of the local bustle.

Can Tho also has a number of impressive markets on land. Cai Khe Market on Tran Van Kheo sells fresh fish and other products that arrive on the river, Xuan Khanh Market on Mau Than Street predominately sells fresh food, fish, vegetables, and fruit, and Ninh Kieu Pier Tourist Market mainly caters to tourists.
In Can Tho, the center of all activity is on the waterfront along Hai Ba Tr?ng Street. This is where visitors will find the famous floating markets and other floating attractions like hotels, bars, and restaurants. The central district for the waterfront is Ninh Ki?u, the wealthiest and most-populated of Can Tho's nine districts. Ninh Ki?u's port is also the hub for boat trips on surrounding waterways. Other urban districts include Bình Th?y, Cai R?ng, Ô Mon, and Th?t N?t, while the rural districts are C? ??, Phong ?i?n, Th?i Lai, and V?nh Th?nh. Each district then has its own assortment of communities and towns. Most visitors stick to the city center, between the Can Tho University and the Ninh Ki?u quay. This area can be easily explored on foot, though there are also opportunities for renting bicycles or motorbikes to get around the city.

Whether on foot, bike, motorbike, or boat, any means of transportation will allow visitors to immerse themselves in the unique market culture of the city.

Many locals get their produce at Xuan Khanh Market.

Mekong Delta Floating Markets

By wanderinggurl in Entertainment
The floating markets on the Mekong Delta are at the peak in the very early morning. If you go through a tour company you are likely to miss the peak times. It's very easy to visit the Mekong Delta on your own, so consider going independent. You'll have a much more unique experience.
