How many days should I stay in Cần Thơ?

It would be perfect if you stay in Cần Thơ for at least 3 days to see and explore every corner of Cần Thơ. So, basically, you can book a boat tour in the morning to visit the floating markets like Cái Răng floating market and Phong Điền floating market, get a hot noodle soup for breakfast and an ice-coffee with condensed milk, then you will visit the fruit orchards as well as the noodle workshop. In the afternoon, you can cycle around the countryside to observe the beauty of nature. And for the other two days, you can visit some other places that are close to Cần Thơ like Châu Đốc, Hậu Giang, Sóc Trăng, Đồng Tháp or Bến Tre and that would mean a whole week to explore those places if you really have time to spend in the Mekong delta.
