Can Tho Things to Do: 65 reviews and 75 photos


The busiest market located in the center of Cantho city is considered a nice place not only its unique native features but cultural values as well. Traditionally, market was a trading center of old Southerners and its main function attached to the old people’s daily activities in the past.

Cantho old market once called Hang Duong market ( means market with full of poplar trees) or Market of Six Southern Provinces. Located at the Hai Ba Trung street, the old market is over one hundred years old, and its construction built at the same time as of Ben Thanh and Binh Tay market.

The Cantho market deeply shows the typical cultural features of the Mekong Delta region. It gives us a beautiful view of the tranquil riverside as well as the busiest trading activities in the whole evening. Inside the market, there are about eighty kiosques displaying and selling a wide range of goods and traditional handicraft products for souvenirs. Also, more than twenty kiosques selling agricultural and seafood products of Song Hau farm are available for local people and tourists as well.

With the existence of the typical market in the center of Cantho city, visitors and tourists in the whole country can enjoy the culture tourist and quick shopping expedition of stores and markets while coming to the land of Tay Do province
