  • These markets were a little disappointing. We expected it to be a thriving market with lot going on. Instead when we arrived at it and the boat took less than two minutes to drive to the end of it. Th...  more »
  • It was without a doubt special. But after seeing Vietnam and their markets i expected more than 30 boats together. 
  • The markets are certainly one of the highlights in the Mekong Delta. The whole life takes place on the river and are worth a tour. Book with EcoTours, which we can only recommend. Great guys, who know the corners away from the tourist traps.

  • We woke up at 5, get to boat at 5.30, paid 700 000 dong and havent seen any floatmarket, only few boats selling fruit to tourists and restaurant bulided only for tourists..... Be sure to go to the correct market, original one opens at 4 a.m.!!
  • "Just" rent some _cheap_ paddle boat and have a good time - up close to the cargo barges.
  • Really rally cool, but you have to choose right time to avoid an enormous amount of tourists
  • good place to know more about river living style and how southern Vietnamese earn their life. But it's becoming more and more touristic with high price for tourist and not many boats as in the past
  • Definitely worth checking out. Make sure to get there early!
