This is the bigger of the two Floating Markets next to Can Tho. Go early and book a tour with a reliable company.

Wow. What an amazing thing to see. People selling, living, and spending most of their life on the river. Pro Tips: 1. Find a boat driver the night before and not buy tickets online. Why? You can find a boat/driver for about $3 USD/person. Your...More

The floating market in Can Tho is a « must-see », it is beautiful, colorful and impressive. However, if you are with your family, it is better to book a private boat which allows you more freedom during the visit! I highly recommend this activity!
