Sunrise over Can Tho in Vietnam

Traveling to Vietnam

August 2019, while traveling 3 weeks in Vietnam I did make a 2 days / 1 night side trip to the Mekong Delta to visit Ben Tre and Can Tho. And in the early morning I made this photo from my room at TTC Hotel in Can Tho, overlooking the riverside. With a population of 1.251.809 people in 2017 Can Tho is not a small place. Originally Can Tho was just a harbour place as transit point in the Mekong Delta but nowadays more and more tourists are flocking to Can Tho to enjoy & experience the local way of life in the Mekong Delta. Can Tho town along the riverside is very popular with Vietnamese tourists. The new life of Can Tho is thanks to the building of new bridges over the many rivers in the Mekong Delta as in the old days you could only reach places here by boat.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
