    • Lobby, Sea Crest Beach Hotel

      Nam Bo

      Medium

      In our opinion, the Nam Bo is one of the best mid-range hotels in Can Tho. It has an ideal location, with easy access to river transport and local attractions.

    • Ut Trinh  Homestay,Vinh Long, Outdoor Area

      Victoria Can Tho

      First Class

      In an area that has previously lacked charming accommodation, the Victoria hotel is refreshingly tastefully designed. The low-rise French architecture gives it a breezy colonial feel.

    • Bassac restaurant terrace, Victoria Chau Doc Hotel

      Victoria Chau Doc

      Medium

      Although this unique hotel is not of the same standard as its popular sister property in Can Tho, it is still a wonderful hotel in a fantastic location.

      Mekong Delta

      Riding mostly down narrow lanes along the river and away from the bustle of daily traffic, you experience real Vietnamese rural life, still unspoilt by modern day living - people working in the river, friendly waving children.
