Cai Mon is a new destination off the beaten track in Ben Tre Province where we can see beautiful flowers grown by hard working and smiling Mekong farmers. Best time to travel there is before Tet holiday when the farmers make their flowers ready to service people in the city
My family are preparing to visit Can Tho, too. I do some research and you can visit My Khanh Orchard or Bảo Gia Trang Viên ( Cai Rang district), Vam Xang or Le Loc. At night, you can go to Tay Do night market to engjoy some local food. You have to consider to visit floating market which is special traditionnal of Western Vietnam. Cai Rang is the biggest and most famous. Hope it helps.
If you prefer to go Orchard garden, you should go to Cai Be town because Cai Be is the central of fruits and you can try some fresh ready fruits on the trees
