In Vietnam travel, anyone who has been to Can Tho City has never forgotten to visit the Ninh Kieu Pier of the city. Night or day, Ninh Kieu Pier has its own poetic and romantic features made up of rivers and canals. The Pier, therefore, has become a heaven of backpackers.
Can Tho city lies along one of the biggest rivers in Mekong Delta – Hau river. To have the whole view of this river, travellers should spend some time at Ninh Kieu dock. Ninh Kieu dock, with Ho Chi Minh statue standing still, is the symbol of Can Tho city.
Ninh Kieu Pier can’t compare with the backpacker area in Ho Chi Minh City for the dynamism and variety of tourist services. However, its natural scenery far outshines that of Ho Chi Minh city’s Pham Ngu Lao Street. This is also an embankment and park, thus, it is always in bustle even day or night.
In the morning, visitors in Vietnam can roam around here to sightsee and to enjoy the fresh air of Mekong Delta. Many people come here every day to do morning exercise or play sports. This is where you can start your trip to the floating market by renting a boat which can be found everywhere along the dock.
In the evening, the food stalls are always ready with many Vietnamese foods, which you cannot miss. The tables are put along the dock so you can enjoy the food while watching the river at night. Every night, Can Tho bridge with sparkling lights, which is the most noticeable thing in dark, can be seen clearly from here.
Also, you can find Can Tho antique market here. Nowadays, this market is where people sell souvenirs for tourists in Vietnam. No matter what time you visit Ninh Kieu dock, there is always things for you to do!
