  • very nice place & peaceful with Mandarine decor near Ninh Kieu Park, easy approaching should visit with a guide  more »
  • There are many temples in Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries, and nothing outstanding about this one. It is a local sight, with statues, altars and photos of people you couldn't easily learn ...  more »
  • Don't understand why this place is so touted in guidebooks: it is not so impressive, such as Thai pagoda. People inside enough, when entering you must remove your shoes.

  • First of all, everything is relative. It's another temple, nothing special if you look for history or monumentality but a sight worth visiting in Can Tho. The ambience and colours have something to it!
  • Beautiful temple, located right opposite the Ninh Kieu port
  • It's small enough to whip through in a couple of minutes, but it's really very nice. The giant incense coils hanging from the ceiling are marvellous.
  • ok
  • My favorite temple in Vietnam. So peaceful. I go there daily during my stays in Can Tho.

Where to stay in Can Tho

The main urban area of the scenic and ever-popular Mekong Delta region, Can Tho offers a large choice of accommodations to suit both luxury-loving and backpack-carrying visitors. Some particularly refined hotels and resorts sit close to the banks of the river and adjoining canals, offering views of the scenery, spas, restaurants, and more. Budget-friendly options, including guesthouses, standard hotels, and hostels, can be found in much the same areas, but possibly a couple of streets back from the water, and offer limited additional facilities.
