The boat ride to the market was enjoyable and relaxing. The actual market is small and there are as many tourist boats as there are boats selling produce. According to our guide the prices are fixed. We saw boats selling pineapples, watermelon, gourds, sweet potato,...More

Its an interesting market like any other floating market, though I found this market to be less crowded. It was good experience to watch people doing their chores in the river and transacting business.

We visited this market in early morning by private small boat. It's chaotic but it's very good way to explore local culture!

Sometimes you just have to do the tourist thing. Fascinating look at local culture, with the downside of the obligatory stops at local vendors. A very unique experience, and I would recommend it.

You should try Cai Rang since the venue is more convenient and I believe there are activities for you to enjoy over there. Cheers.
