Located 173 kilometres from Saigon, Can Tho  is considered as the heart of Vietnam's Mekong Delta. The city, regarded as "Western capital", with an estimated population of 1,121,000 as of 2004, is the biggest city in the Mekong Delta. The city is located on the south bank of the Hậu River, the bigger branch of the Mekong River

Can Tho has a reputation for being a welcoming place, where everybody is smiling and welcoming. Indeed the Vietnamese in the Mekong Delta are making good a saying that goes:
 
"Cần Thơ gạo trắng nước trong
Ai đi tới đó lòng không muốn về"
 
"Cần Thơ, white rice, clear waters,
All who come wish never to leave."
 
Can Tho has a population well in excess of 1 million and is the biggest city in the Mekong Delta. Although developing fast (about 10% growth in 2004), it retains its charm as the center of a rural area, as urban development is taking place in a rather orderly manner.
