Cai Rang Floating Market is the biggest floating market in Mekong Delta

Can Tho

Can Tho

The epicentre of the Mekong Delta, Can Tho is the largest city in the region and feels like a metropolis after a few days exploring the backwaters. As the political, economic, cultural and transportation centre of the Mekong Delta, it's a buzzing town with a lively waterfront lined with sculpted gardens and an appealing blend of narrow backstreets and wide boulevards. It is also the perfect base for nearby floating markets, the major draw for tourists who come here to boat along the many canals and rivers leading out of town.
 

 

Cai Rang Floating Market

It is said that “not being in Cai Rang floating market means not knowing the land of Tay Do – an old name of Can Tho”. Cai Rang floating market, one of the famous floating markets of the Southwest, specializes in selling fruits and agricultural products of the whole region.

 Every early morning, hundred boats gather together where their owners start to sell agri - products. To be recognized easily, they hang out product samples on a long bamboo (called Cay Beo) in front of the boats, so that they do not need to cry their wares as in mainland market. 

Place: on Can Tho river, 5km from city center, near Cai Rang bridge, Le Binh ward, Cai Rang district. 

Visit time: ideally 6 – 8 am everyday (except January 1st, 2 nd & May 5th on Lunar Calendar)
