Superyacht Aviva of British billionaire Joe Lewis, the owner of English Premier League’s Tottenham Hotspur football club, arrived in Can Tho on Sunday and is anchored in the Hau River area near the Can Tho Bridge, marking its third voyage to the Vietnamese city after the previous two visits in 2019.

Lewis chose Can Tho as his first destination during this revisit to Vietnam because he was impressed with the riverine culture of the Mekong Delta region and the hospitality of the local people, according to Huynh Van Son, general director of Sea Star Saigon JSC, who arranged the billionaire’s visit to Phu Quoc Island off Kien Giang Province and Da Nang City three years ago.

He visited the popular Cai Rang Floating Market and the Con Son community tourism area during his previous visits to Can Tho.
