This is a must see in Vietnam. The markets are a true representation of Mekong life. A fantastic photo opportunity.

I'd certainly recommend a visit to Cai Rang floating market. Go early and you'll be approached by boat after boat selling a huge variety of mainly fruit and vegetables, although you can also buy breakfast on the river if you missed it at your hotel....More

This is probably worth seeing but was a bit disappointing to be honest. We set off about 5:30am from Can Tho and the boat ride was nice but the market itself wasn't as big or colourful or frantic as I expected. It was ok but...More

We had an early start so we could see the locals purchasing there fresh products before the boats departed. There are lots of boats offering lots of different produce, its very busy. A bit different that your average English market. Well worth seeing.

Okay...been there...done that...the weather can be quite warm. It would be better to get to the floating market before 5 AM. Don’t forget insect repellent...mosquitoes can be a nuisance in the Mekong Delta

It’s more hype than anything. It was not worth 5 hour drive from Saigon. The tour just lead us through tourist traps. I don’t know if anything was genuine. Bee farm only had one box of live bees, others were empty than they tried to...More

Do this trip early as possible. We set off at 5.30am and I would suggest going even earlier. We had a fairly largish boat to our selves but maybe a small boat might be better as can approach the market boats better. Although the smaller...More

Something not to miss in can tho. Despite the high number of touristic boats and the rubbish, it stays an authentic experience.

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