Furthermore, the wharf Ninh Kieu is where Hau Giang (Back River) and Can Tho River falls into the same flow. From the morning, hundreds of junks have gathered on this section of river and that makes a cultural trait in daily activities of the South.

Going to these places, people can breathe in a really pure atmosphere, in its literal meaning, and wander in the gardens, under the shade of the trees. When feeling tired, they can relax on hammocks or catch fish to grill. That is of great interest to everyone.
