Can Tho Vietnam History
According to experts, Can Tho has untapped potential as a tourist destination with a rich history and cultural heritage. When I visited Vietnam, it was a budding tourist destination in the 1970s and 1980s. There are many famous places that bear the cultural and historical identity of South Vietnam, such as the floating market, the old town of Ho Chi Minh City and the ancient temples. According to some experts, up to 100,000 people can live per square kilometre, more than in any other city in Vietnam.
Can Tho is undoubtedly an ideal destination for anyone wishing to explore the history of the Mekong Delta and its rich cultural heritage. Not only should you travel, but you should also learn about the local culture, admire the ancient temples, the old town and the rich history and cultural identity of the city. It is a great place to book a tour guide who can help you understand the disappearing culture and modernisation that has taken over the second most populous country in Southeast Asia after Cambodia, along with its history and also its current state of development.
After the French conquered Vietnam for the second time in 1945, Can Tho County was founded after the signing of the Geneva Convention. During the French colonial period, it was always the capital of the Mekong Delta, but the Americans have made some changes since the signing of the Geneva Convention in 1954. The old regime of South Vietnam has established its own government, the National Liberation Front of Vietnam (FNV).
Can Tho after the French left the region when it was renamed Phong Dinh, but the city remains one of the most important cities in the Mekong Delta and its capital. After liberation from the south and reunification with the country, the state still designates Can Thos as the center of the Mekong River Delta. According to Quan Nha nuoc State Publishers, published in Sai Gon in 1875, Can tho was Vietnam's capital from 1873 until the end of World War II.
In 1969, the city of Can Tho was separated from the province of Can Tho and placed under the administration of the western part of South Vietnam. When the new province Phong Dinh (now capital of North Vietnam) was founded, the foundation of a city CanTho was already planned.
Can Tho University is the fifth university in the Republic of Vietnam and the city of Can Tho is a fourth important economic region in Vietnam. On February 23, 1876, the government of Saigon issued a decree to take the first steps towards the establishment of the CanTho county as an independent city. The Prime Minister recognized it as a first-class urban center belonging to Phong Dinh Province (now the western part of North Vietnam), and the Prime Minister recognized it as a first-class "urban center."
On January 1, 1868, the Governor of South Vietnam, Bonard, decided to merge Bai Sao Soc Trang with the district he had founded with his father in Sa Dec and establish it as a district. In 1739 Can Tho was explored under the name Tran Giang and officially presented on the map of Vietnam. Built in 1915, it is considered one of the two famous markets in Saigon at the time, called Binh Tay and Ben Thanh. It was opened in 1876 as the first public market in the city and in 1924 as the second.
Can Tho has a very typical tropical monsoon climate, with a dry and cool season that lasts from December to the end of April. The water comes from the Long Tuyen spring, which flows through the channels that flow into the river in the southwestern part of the city, from where it flows into the channel. It is located on the way and is easily accessible via the Rach Tran Giang Canal, the Can Tien River and the Sa Dec Canal (Ca Trang).
It's easy to reach Can Tho from any city in the Mekong Delta, but as a regional hub, it is easiest to operate from the city of Phnom Penh.
The Mekong Delta, considered Vietnam's rice basket, contributes more than half of the country's rice production, and a wide variety of fruits means that Can Tho is well stocked with fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other fruits and vegetables. Due to its central location on a network of waterways, it has become a popular destination for tourists, but also for fishermen and fishing families.
