On Sunday, I traveled to Can Tho, Vietnam, a city roughly 4 hours south of Saigon in Mekong Delta, for Tet. I needed to spend one night in Can Tho before I was “allowed” to travel to Co Do. I arrived to Can Tho via Mai Linh Express which is probably one of the best ways to travel through the Mekong Delta. Once we arrived into Can Tho, a Mai Linh Express driver recommended that I stay at the Kim Lan Hotel. That was probably some of the best advice he gave me.
Kim Lan Hotel is located on 138A Nguyen An Ninh in the Ninh Kieu District of Can Tho. It is located pretty much in the center of the city. I decided to stay in the VIP3 Room located on the 8th floor. Normal price was $35 US per night. I was able to get it for about 350,000 VND per night or roughly $20 US.
The view from this room was excellent. I got two great views of Can Tho as you are about to see in the next blog post. The facilities were great as well. The air conditioner worked real great. I felt that I was back in Dalat and even in Seattle.
At midnight, I was got a great view of the two fireworks displays along the river (sorry no shots since I was tired at the time).
I ordered room service and got a great Vietnamese meal as well!!!
Now here are the shots of the room:
