Finding prayer facilities at the Can Tho Old Market will be impossible as the city of Can Tho is not known to have any mosques or prayer facilities. If able to locate a secluded place outdoors, Muslim tourists could offer their prayers here; otherwise they will have to return to their hotel rooms at prayer times.
Visitors to the Can Tho Old Market should be able to find a couple of food stalls at the market. While these vendors are sure to sell a variety of delicious local dishes, Muslim tourists will not be able to find any selling Halal food. Muslim visitors will therefore have to dine on suitable vegetarian and seafood dishes here, or they can visit Newdelhi Halal India Food, one known Halal restaurant in Can Tho.
