The Cai Rang floating market of Vietnam is the biggest floating market in the Mekong Delta. This massive market, made up of scores of boats bobbing up and down the burnished brown waters of the Mekong
, is over a 100 years old.
Set out early in the morning on a boat and stop by the breakfast boats for steaming hot Vietnamese food or by a beverages boat for delicious local coffee or even a cold beer. Most boats will have items on sale prominently displayed at the top of a long upright bamboo stick to tell you exactly what’s on offer on each boat.
Peddling everything from farm fresh fruits and vegetables to lottery tickets, this waterborne market is a true enigma.
