Travel Blogs from Can Tho
Started the trip to the Mekong Delta area today at 8 AM. Since the drive was 1.5 hours, our guide spent time discussing the political and economic situation in the south versus the north. It was again very enlightening. Some generalizations: The south is more automated when it comes to such things as rice production. Things take a long time to …
On the coffee table, white finger bowls of floating purple orchids await the dip of our fingers and a basket of fresh grapes, guava, mango and rambutan beckon to be plucked. A hand painted card of a girl in a traditional au dai, serene in a garden, contains a welcome message from the hotel's general manager. On the vanity, a classic Vietnamese hat …
Another early start to fly from Danang to Ho Chi Minh airport followed by a couple of hours in the car to Cai Be. This was the start of a 2 day trip in the Mekong Delta.
Our boat, the Bassac III, is one of the few that takes tourists overnight on the delta and a more leisurely way to absorb the sights. We were thankful of the air …
We started this leg of the trip early morning in saigon. Katie and I revisited a little bakery for breakfast, all fresh and very tasty. Our guide Mr Long, proudly demonstrated the route we would be taking over the next few days on his i-pad (he did this about every 2 hours for the next two days). It was obviously his new toy, but did help to …
We spent a couple of days in the Mekong Delta. Also known as "nine dragon river delta". The Mekong river is the 12th largest river in the world. The Mekong Delta is some of the most fertile land in Vietnam, producing most of its rice here. Coconut trees grow abundantly here as well as a variety of different fruit and vegetables not found anywhere …

Historical Traveler Reviews Victoria Can Tho Resort
Very nice place in Can Tho
A very nice hotel, outside the city, right on the water. The hotel has it's own peer and you can start your Mekong boat tour straight from the hotel peer.
There is a shuttle boat that goes to the city center.
The hotel is built around a nice pool, a great way to relax after a sweaty day at the delta.
The room are large and nice.
There is a restaurant beside the pool, where you can sit inside, buy the glass window, or outside closer to the pool. The restaurant was not very busy, and we only had some drinks and a lotus salad there.
The hotel is one of the more expensive ones in Can Tho but its a nice place to spend the night if you can afford it
A great hotel in the middle of nowhere!! We stayed here with our 4 teenagers for just one night, but had a good time. Low season when we were there so only 11 rooms occupied. Food was excellent and service also. Staff very friendly.
Best place in can Tho
Perfect hotel, a little bit demotivated staff (especially at the bar, donīt be thursty!), but beautiful location! Because there is much traffic on the river in the front, donīt take the more expensive riverside rooms, take a garden view, they are all offering view to the river!!
This hotel has a good pool area and my massage was wonderful (and booked at the last minute), but I found this hotel to be overall disappointing. The food was so-so, much inferior to all the other food we'd had on our trip. The Mekong is HOT, HUMID and BUGGY. I cannot emphasize these things enough. Therefore, the hotel has all of the mildew, bug, sticky doors, moldy air-conditioner etc problems. When we checked into our "garden view" we found we had a view of the roof of the first floor and the plumbing and a/c vents from first floor rooms. We asked to be changed. The hotel was not full at all, but they still tried to charge us. My husband spent some time on the issue and they moved us to another "garden view" room which overlooked some scraggly trees and and the employee parking lot. I doubt there is anything nicer in the Mekong, but I found the Victoria Hotel in Can Tho to be a let down (especially after reading great reviews and spending so much time getting there).
This was a wonderful hotel and one of our favorites while visiting Vietnam. They provide a free shuttle bus or boat ride to town from the hotel. Next time I would not waste the time to go to town as there was nothing there to see. The resort is nice with a pool and a nice restaurant. A nice place to relax after a full day of touring the area.
Stayed here one night in November and, although we arrived late following a flight delay, the staff could not have been more helpful and provided a suite to make our mere 8 hours there even more enjoyable.
Had breakfast on the hotel's junk on the Mekong river which was simply superb. To watch the river start to come to life in the early morning whilst enjoying a first class breakfast with only 3 other passengers was a truly memorable experience.
After our experience at the Hoi An resort, we lowered our expectations for this hotel.
The Only Upmarket Hotel
Discreet but excellent service in a hotel of the old style. Deluxe rooms fine as was the location outside town - but the sound of the river trafic never stops. A truly relaxing hotel that never quite seems full.
I visit CanTho about every 1 1/2 years. I travel with a friend who has family there.
The Victoria Hotel is a beautiful hotel. However, I spend 30 to 45 days at a time in CanTho. My favorite is the 4 star Golf Hotel at half the price with larger rooms, $7.00 private massage, very friendly staff, good food and located perfectly for a superior experience of the area.
The Chau Ngoc Hotel not far from the water front is a more basic alternative for only $10.00 per night. The owner speaks English and is very helpful. The rooms are new, clean and air conditioned. This hotel is located across the street from the colleges.
