A different side to Can Gio

Mention Can Gio, the most remote district of HCMC, and people think of mangrove forests, mudflats and coconut trees. However, there is a different Can Gio, with friendly locals, shady roads and quaint villages on a small peninsula that awaits discovery.

From Ho Chi Minh City, travelers can take a motorbike on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street in District 4, then turn to Huynh Tat Phat Street in District 7, cross Binh Khanh Ferry then head for 40 kilometers along Rung Sac road.

The recently sealed Run Sac road used to be a nightmare of mud and puddles,

but now it’s a smooth highway through forests full of birds and monkeys.

A stop at a guesthouse at Can Thanh Town will give you insight into the lives of local fishermen. There are no luxury hotels but it’s very peaceful and clean.

In the afternoon, walk to the wharf to watch the small fishing boats putter home from sea with fish, crab and shrimps.

Then stop by Can Gio Market by the sea to visit the local fishmongers.

The small restaurants on Duyen Hai Street are not to be missed with seafood straight off the boats for VND15,000 to 120,000 a dish.
