  • Navigating the Mekong in a stretch where some boats are standing for ' the farmers can sell the products of the Earth. More like fruit. It's not great either. So better general markets on the Mainland.

  • We did a 1 1/2 tour with Susan Bui in the mekong delta. We where with a small group total of 4 and enjoyed how she explained everything and showed us of course the floating market to. We stayed at her...  more »
  • Nice to see, but unfortunately also become tourist attraction again so terrible. We were there during the last days of Tet (not really the right choice). There were about more tourist boats than boats with locals.

  • 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!
