TMG – With amenities and services tied to local culture, Victoria Can Tho is the ideal host to help guests fully explore the enchanting Mekong Delta.
Set in a beautiful natural setting on the banks of the Hau River, Victoria Can Tho Resort, a member of Thien Minh Group (TMG), has long been known as a dreamy oasis in the heart of the Mekong Delta. Guests staying at this Indochina-inspired resort will find a quiet and relaxing ambiance surrounded by the gorgeous colors of Vietnam’s southwestern region.
The best-known sightseeing tour for guests staying at Victoria Can Tho is the morning cruise to the Cai Rang Floating Market. While touring the Cai Rang Floating Market, visitors can experience the bustling atmosphere of hundreds of boats of all sizes, hear the sounds of laughter mixed with the loud calls between tourists and traders, and savor the delicious flavors unique to the region, including crab noodle soup, fresh coconut juice, and fruits typical of the Delta. Guests can choose to have breakfast served from one of the boats at the floating market, shop for local specialties, or enjoy a mini buffet on board.
Other popular sightseeing tours visit the countryside surrounding Can Tho and the river islet of Con Son. Boarding a sampan cruise departing from Victoria Can Tho, guests will also have the opportunity to cycle through lush green rice fields, interact with farmers in Vietnam’s largest “rice granary,” stroll around Con Son Islet to see how fish and shrimp are raised, witness a frenzied carp feeding session, and explore the famous fruit orchards of the Mekong Delta.
Guests can also choose to go on an evening cruise on the Mekong Princess and enjoy a romantic dinner on the Hau River, cooled by river breezes as gentle waves lap the boat. As night settles over the river, this magical intersection of space and time is sure to leave unforgettable memories.
“Street food” buffet
Every Saturday night, Victoria Can Tho recreates a traditional marketplace for visitors to experience the rustic bounty of local flavors and specialties. For a truly authentic experience, the buffet features dishes commonly sold at street food stalls and by itinerant sellers who hawk their food, transported by yokes, a charming feature of life in southern Vietnam.
Immerse yourself in the simple pleasures of the Mekong Delta without having to travel far as you sample the delicious flavors of the region accompanied by the strains of “Don Ca Tai Tu,” the famed folk music of the Delta, all conveniently at Victoria Can Tho Resort.
Tree planting at Victoria Garden Cafe

Families will have the opportunity to learn about the rich local flora and join hands in planting young seedlings, an exciting activity that nurtures the curiosity and love of nature that children naturally have. There’s simply no better way for parents to spend a weekend than sipping an aromatic cup of coffee while watching the kids have loads of fun getting close to nature.
