Although located close to the thumping epicentre - Ho Chi Minh City, reaching Cao Lanh is not exactly easy. You would have to hop on to the bus headed to Long Xuyen and get down at the Cao Lanh Ferry Terminal. You can then take the local transport called xe om to reach the Cao Lanh Bus Station.
Buses are a common way to commute within the city. However, it is also quite a charming experience to walk around the bylanes on foot.
