    There were so many antiques and things in this house all over the place. The house had nice carvings, and murals, etc. We enjoyed also walking around the beautiful garden. Just lovely. There was also a artist with a boutique of his pictures to purchase.

    It was very interesting tasting the different products which were made right at the Muoi Cuong Cocoa Farm. The family are very proud of their business and the money from additional cocoa products bought by tourists goes directly back to them. The iced chocolate was delicious!

    Many of the Hotels and tourist attractions in Can Tho City, are in the Hai Ba Trung road area, and its surroundings. A good planning before visiting this site, helps to maximise the available time at hand and avoids unnecessary traveling up and down searching for a missed attraction.

    We were staying at Kim Too hotel which is also located on Hai Ba Trung road. We planned and followed a circuit on foot as follows.
    Kim Too Hotel→ 150 meters→ Ong Temple → 20 meters across the road → Ho Chi Minh Memorial → 90meters → Niem Kiew Wharf → 300meters → Can Tho Night market road → 500 meters→ Phua Huat Temple→ 90 meters across the road → Munirang say temple → 250 meters→ Tarot Museum → 500meters→ Bao Tang Quan Khu 9 (War Museum) → 260meters→ Can Tho Museum→ 230meters→ Kham Lon Can Tho ( Prison Provinciale-Colonial Prison)→ 500meters → Ninh Kieu Pedestrian bridge ( Cau di bo Ben Ninh Kieu) → 400 meters →Kim Too Hotel.

    It was following this scheme that we reached the Tarot Museum.
    We walked to this museum after a stopover at the Munirang Say temple, 250 meters away. It is nearby and easy to find.

    We pressed the bell and the door was opened and the owner introduced us to the place. There are various ticket prices, and we chose the cheapest (100000 VND) where we tour the place on our own. A free bottle water is provided too. It is a two storey setup with hugh collection of artefacts, books, antique timepieces and card of all types from around the world.

    We were gifted a deck of Tarot Card at the end of our visit.
    We spent about 20 minits here. Since such museums are rare, it's worthy of a visit though it may be a bit overpriced.

    A cultural symbol of the Can Tho and Southwest region. We had many experiences with the float market in early morning, visiting agriculture and local fruit garden and You can go there on the cruise and enjoy the nightlife.

    Wednesday afternoon on the 9th January and we visited this Vietnamese Pagoda, which is situated near the centre of Can Tho. Our visit was scheduled as part of our Tour, and our Guide, Ha, was most knowledgeable and informative.

    In the grounds in front of the Pagoda is a large statue of a smiling Buddha and nearby a statue of Guanyin, Godess of Mercy. The presence of male and female Dieties symbolises that all are welcome, both male and females. That is one of the major difference between a Vietnamese Pagoda and other Temples, which are exclusively for males.

    At the front of the Pagoda are 3 gates, 2 smaller ones on either side of a larger one, the large gate is so that the Gods can pass through and the 2 smaller ones for guests and worshippers to pass through.

    This 2 storey Pagoda, is a striking building with its red pillars, roof tiles and ornate roof. On the ground floor is the main Shrine is located along with other religious items. We also climbed the small staircase to the first floor where the old bell is housed along with more religious items and images.

    To the side of the Pagoda is a tall ornate tower, which is the tomb of a Monk.

    On entering the Pagoda, visitors are asked to remove their shoes and to wear appropriate clothing.

    A beautiful Pagoda well worth a visit.

    It was following this scheme that we reached Munirang say Temple.
    This is a golden coloured Buddhist temple just across the road from Phat Hoc Buddhist temple and decided to check it out. It is built in the Khmer Angkor architecture style and is very impressive.
    We explored the ground floor and then walked up the stairs to the area of worship. You need to remove your shoes to enter the area of worship where the buddha is sited on a golden throne on an altar.
    The monks were welcoming and helpful. We spent about 30 minits here.

    Food ok. Inflated prices for street food. Misleading banner prices.Check pricing before touching food. Better off eating in restaurants.

    This is a heavy traffic bridge, measuring 2.7 Km, over the Hau River, and should not be confused with the Ninh Kieu Pedestrian bridge over the Cai Khe Canal ( Cau di bo Ben Ninh Kieu) which is at one end of the Hai Ba Trung road.

    While both these bridges, are located in the city of Can Tho, the Ninh Kieu Pedestrian bridge, as the name suggest, is a walking bridge, and is about 200 meters long and no vehicles are allowed on it.

    Our boat lady and guide, Miss Loan informed us, that the Can Tho bridge replaced the earlier ferry system across the Hau river, connecting the City of Can Tho to Vinh Long, and was built with the help of the Japanese Government.

    We were visiting some waterways and channels and were taken for a ride bellow this bridge which looked majestic. Just like the Ninh Kieu Pedestrian bridge, the Can Tho bridge is also illuminated up at night with morphing lights and is a spectacular site.

    이것은 명백한 관광객 덫입니다. 나는 모든 거리 음식을 맛보기 위해 밤에 여기에 갈 것이다. 저렴한 음식과 맛있는. 밤 시장은 훌륭합니다. 영어 가이드로서 무료로 자원 봉사하는 학생들이 있습니다. 당신은 음식 스탠드 옆에 앉아 먹을 수 있습니다. 주머니에 조심하십시오. 권장.
    This is an obvious tourist trap. I would go here at night to taste all the street foods stands. Cheap foods and delicious. The night market is wonderful. There are students who volunteer as English guide for free. You can sit next to the food stands and eat. Be careful with your pocket. Strongly recommended.
