  • Guests can enjoy a boat trip. You can make beautiful pictures. Approaching boats to buy fresh fruits that girlie with the typical pointy Hat you peel and you need instantly. I recommend sunscreen.

  • We chose a small tour with our guesthouse, only 3 hours, two on the boat (with the boatman) for a price equivalent to the agencies who on board 6, a private, tour it was nice! However market is not at all what we can see on the pictures. This are of big boats, some small canoes cute and above all more than boats of tourists than locals. The boats are dark, not enough colors! The market seems more active... The Tower in the small adjacent channels is nice. It probably won't be the floating market of your dreams. In short, don't pay too much to go :)

  • 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!
