CAN THO (VNS) — Long Tuyen (also called Binh Thuy), one of the country's five top ancient villages, is a must-see destination in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta city of Can Tho as the 170 year-old village in Binh Thuy District has beautiful natural scenery and cultural relics.

About 5km away from Can Tho's centre, Long Tuyen is located along the peaceful and poetic Binh Thuy River. Locals build their houses and fruit orchards along the river banks, creating picturesque scenery with fresh air and quiet settings.

Binh Thuy Temple, Nam Nha and Hoi Linh pagodas, patriot Bui Huu Nghia's Tomb, the Communist Party of An Nam's office and nha co vuon lan (ancient house with orchid garden) are the village's national heritage sites. — VNS
