We stayed at a LOVELY hotel in that area -- called The Victoria Hotel. We really loved it. It is in a great location -- a little off the main area, but the main area is easily accessible by the hotel's water shuttle. This hotel has a beautiful pool and is located right on the water -- so, great view! The hotel is a colonial style. The only thing was there were mosquitos! But, I guess that is pretty typical of that area anyway! Sorry, at this time I do not have their # in front of me, but you can check it out at: http://www.asiatour24.com/asia-hotels/cantho/Victoria.html

Good Luck and Happy Travels!

Thanks for your suggestion. It looks really great.

However the hotel is rather expensive. An accommodation up to 25 $ would be should be sufficient to us.

Best regards,
Bernd

I've stayed in Can Tho twice. The first time during an organised tour in a bad hotel, the second time during my Mekong trip. That time, the hotel was rather good. I think it was the Tay Ho hotel, cos that's the only one I find in LP that's looking right out on the Ho Chi Minh statue. It's cheap, decent & right next to the waterfront. In your hotel you'll be approached for a trip on the Mekong, so don't worry about where to find that.

Hello Bernd
We also stayed at the Victoria CanTho. It's nice but if you don't intend to spend time in the hotel, beside sleeping (which I recommend you don't) it's on the expensive side of the scale and I'm not shure it's worth it. (Like the one in Hoi An which I recommend dearly if you get there). Make sure to take the boat trip on the Mekong, and don't miss the floating markets, the many small factories and the fruit gardens
Enjoy

Thanks, mango13 and Galy, for your recommandations.
I'm still looking for a comfortable and clean hotel in Can Tho. There are some, that should be fine, but without E-Mail or Web-Adress, so I asked them via Fax. Still waiting for answers ... Perhaps, we'll book in december on place.
Best regards,
Bernd

Travel Tips for Can Tho

Life On The Mekong River - Mekong Delta

by sunnywong

Life On The Mekong River - Mekong Delta The people living in the Mekong Delta make their living as farmers and fishermen. Often, they live right on the edge of the rivers or canals on various structures built from whatever materials found.
Often, many homes have fisheries right under them. Enterprising individuals build a cage like structure of bamboo beneath their homes on these waterways to house fishes. As the fishes grew, they sell the whole batch to processors from the city and start with new ones.

a convenient option to turn off the bulb

by richiecdisc

The city was not as nice as Can Tho and we found only meager offerings of food in the local markets. It was quite a let down after the previous night’s feast. But it wasted some time and when we returned to the hotel, it was explained that they now did have the elusive double room with AC. And surprise, surprise, it was at their very hotel.

Our elation did not last long as we triumphantly walked into our new digs to find what appeared a room used by prostitutes on an hourly basis. Shrouded by the same florescent lighting as the lobby, there was a convenient option to turn off this glare and utilize a dim red bulb that was fixed to the headboard of the spacious and rare double bed. Oh and there was a very large wall size mirror running the length of the bed as well. Let’s not talk about the sheets; we quickly pulled out our own. The funniest part was our friend from the bus stopped by to borrow some shampoo and said our room was so much nicer than his simple one. After he left, we laughed after realizing they did not want to give us this “special” room with the double bed and mirror as we were paying a reduced group rate. And most likely, they were losing out on the hourly rate too. (concluded below in Fondest Memory)

yummy spring rolls

by richiecdisc

Another fun stop was a rice paper factory. These transparent rice papers were formed by pouring a thin batter into a small wok-like pan and cooking it for a matter of seconds. These were then allowed to dry and stacked for selling. The precision in this small factory was incredible. In the front of the factory, they sold these delicious spring rolls, made with their finest rice paper. They were probably the tastiest we had on our trip and certainly the freshest.

the last place I expected a mosque

by richiecdisc

Cham people live in Cham only villages and life revolves around fishing and small scale farming, especially of onions. It is a simple but seemingly idyllic life. The Cham are traditionally Muslims and it was a pleasant surprise to find this austere mosque just behind the simple village.

Float on the river

by jolou

Sitting on a rowing boat along the river you can almost imagine that you are set back in time. Passing by the little huts and occasional people bathing in the water is a great way to feel that you really are in Vietnam!
