The Can Tho Museum is not known to house a prayer room for Muslim visitors. Muslim tourists will also be unable to locate a mosque or Islamic Centre in the city of Can Tho. Muslims visiting the Can Tho Museum will therefore have to return to their hotel rooms at prayer times.
While the city of Can Tho has numerous restaurants, Muslim tourists will find it difficult to locate Halal outlets. Newdelhi Halal India Food is one restaurant in Can Tho that is known to be Halal. When dining at local restaurants that are not Halal, Muslim tourists must be careful about what the order, since non-Halal ingredients are widely used in local dishes.
