Lonely Planet review
For a close-up view of the reptile that once ruled the Mekong, head to this farm which is home to thousands of crocodiles ranging in size from 10cm to 4m; we feel sorry for the peacocks in the neighbouring pen having to put up with those beady-eyed stares all day long. The meat and skin of these animals is largely exported, though some Vietnamese drop in to buy fresh or frozen crocodile meat or to eat at the onsite restaurant. A little shop sells crocodile-skin wallets and bags. The farm lies 8km south of town on the road to Can Tho.
