At the conference, local businesses presented the new river tour of Mai Linh Group, farming experience at Bao Gia Trang farm, eco-tourism at Thoi An Dong Tourist Village, making traditional cakes at Con Son community-based tourist area and experience being landlords at My Khanh Tourist Village. To promote tourism in the region, the enterprises offer 30-50 per cent discount on services. Can Tho and the Mekong Delta businesses also signed agreements with businesses in Hanoi and the northern region.

Speaking at the conference, Vice Chairman of Can Tho City People's Committee Duong Tan Hien said the promotions aim to introduce tourism products of Can Tho City and strengthen co-operation and market connection with partners in other regions.

“Tourism products in Can Tho City and the Mekong Delta provinces have authentic characteristics that are different from tourism products in other provinces in the north. 

"We hope that enterprises in the north and south can work together to connect destinations and attract tourists to experience tourism products in localities, step by step bringing the tourism industry to becoming a key economic sector,"

 

Vice chairman of the Vietnam Administration of Tourism Ha Van Sieu highly appreciated the attractive destinations of Can Tho tourism. Sieu said with the participation of Can Tho businesses to VITM, the biggest event of Vietnamese tourism industry and the committed co-operation with northern partners, Can Tho tourism will shine.

Addressing the conference, Sieu expressed the hope that Vietnamese tourism will soon recover and develop rapidly when the COVID-19 pandemic is over. The growth of Can Tho tourism has shown positive signs with new products and attractive policies for tourists, he said.

"I expect that the co-operation between Can Tho and northern provinces will be successful, contributing to promoting tourism development in the country," he added.

Can Tho is the largest city in the southwestern region of Vietnam, with the water-based tourism and culture. Some famous destinations include Cai Rang floating market specialising in selling fruits and agricultural products of the whole region; Binh Thuy ancient house in French architectural style located at 26/1A Bui Huu Nghia Street and Bang Lang Stork Garden, 52km from the city centre, home to thousands of storks as well as many other kinds of birds.
