Nguyen shakes, our hotel organised the boat trip, we arrived 6:00 am, saw lots of big boats selling to smaller "retail"boats. Then visited the market on land for fish, meat etc and a coconut candy factory.

We experienced this as part of an overnight Mekong cruise and found it quite fascinating to see the vendors selling their produce in very large quantities to buyers rafted along side the floating market boats. Each boat has their "wares" hoisted on their masts as...More

Our hosts (Greenvillage 2) organized the tour for us. Leaving at 5.30 am was well worth this trip. The boats sell the whole shipload not by piece. On the poles you can see what they have on board.

It's not crowded as expected but very worth seeing. We visited early in the morning as part of an overnight tour on Mekong cruise.

More tourist boats than vendors. Way over-rated. I have seen a number of floating markets and this is the sorriest. Very disappointing. An an anachronism on life support.

Best part was trip to the market watching the sunrise. A collection of rusty boats in the river whose main product seemed to be pineapples. Not much trade going on apart from selling to tourist boats.

We did the tour with Susan Bui and had a wonderful experience. Instead of being crammed on a boat with loads of other tourists, we could enjoy the floating markets by ourselves. Susan did not only provide a lot of interesting knowledge about the market,...More

Back in the days it probably was the most important market to supply local people. Today it seems to be nothing left than some boats that are placed here for tourist. Worth to go there if it's included in your tour but not a must...More

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