Response from Yannick:
Thanks for your nice comment about our apartment.
You and your family were wonderful guests.
You are right about Can Tho in the sense it has a much less dense urbanization than other cities like Ho Chi Minh City. This give it a more peaceful atmosphere but also leads to longer distances to go from one place to another.
I am sorry to hear that you were not able to find the restaurants close-by. When we met the first time you were with your uncle who lives in Can Tho and perhaps I forgot to tell you the usual advices we give to renters, specially foreigners. As you speak a perfect Vietnamese, I am surprised that the 24/7 security staff of the building or the pharmacy and bank on the ground floor did not answered your questions.
There are at least three restaurants in less than 5 minutes walking just in the opposite side of the roundabout. There are also several other places in the broad avenue going to the river banks, not much further. For cheap meals, behind the hospital there are at least two popular places I know that serves daily meals like pho and rice.
Regarding transportation, I agree that if you don't have your own vehicle taking a taxi every time might be expensive. However there is bus line going to the Big C mall and then the city center with a bus stop at the hospital just down the building. Buses run from 6am to 6pm and are as cheap as 3000 VND per adult (around $US 0,07).
I apologize about the internet connection that was slow sometime. I know that for your work you had to exchange several gigabytes of pictures with iCloud and it took time. Unfortunately we had to change our internet access provider before your arrival because their plan was over and it seems the new one was not a wise choice. We will remedy the situation.
We appreciate your feedback and will try to improve things for the next time. I know AirBnB provides a page to give guests advices about food/tourism and I will try to update it accordingly.
Hanh and Yannick.
