Visiting Cai Rang floating market at Can Tho, Vietnam

Traveling to Vietnam
Boats at Cai Rang Floating Market at Can Tho

While traveling 3 weeks Relaxed Vietnam I did make a 2 days / 1 night side trip to the Mekong Delta to visit Ben Tre and Can Tho. And in the early morning I took a boat from Can Tho to the famous Cai Rang Floating Market. This floating market is a bit different as you might think. It is a location in the Can Tho River where bigger boats wait to load off their cargo. The cargo is moved into smaller boats who sell the products like fruit, rice and vegetables to markets. As the bigger boats are there for a long time there are also small boats coming along selling anything the family living on the bigger boats might need. Hence the floating market. Most boats are still beautiful wooden boats where an all family is living. Following are a few photos I took while waving between the waters of the Can Tho River.
