Note on the Rainy Season
If you can’t get away to Can Tho before the rainy season starts, don’t worry. The rains in this region are usually short and won’t affect your vacation or weekend seriously. Just bear in mind that the weather is typically hotter during this time and can reach 35 C with humidity levels hovering between 80-85%. Thus when those afternoon thunderstorms come by, just head to the Café or Grill for a Mekong Flavours cooking class, or book a treatment at the Spa. There is also a yoga pavilion in addition to a Pilates studio to take advantage of.
