With hundred of boats turned into shops and stalls, Cai Rang Floating Market represents one of the largest floating markets in the Mekong Delta. Shop for fresh ingredients and sample various local farm products, passed to you via a long pole. (Also be prepared to catch your sample hurled at you from a swaying boat.) Stretching 0.5 km (0.3 mi) from Cai Rang Bridge, the market offers a huge variety of fresh produce like watermelons, coconuts, bananas, freshwater fish, and seafood. Some 6 km (3.7 mi) from Cai Tho city, the market is best accessed by a boat tour.

  • Susan ( Or Facebook (Susan Bui) speak English are polite and very nice! Day trip, we met at the hotel on time as agreed on fb, Sunrise with breakfast (Vietnamese coffee the best I've ever had!) with a typical boat driven by a nice lady then breakfast with the typical delicious pho! Walk to the village along the Mekong, visit to the factory of handmade noodles, shopping at the market and then dinner cooked by her (and a little too) in a quaint guesthouse with comfortable and relaxing hammocks! Return to can tho to 1230. I highly recommend this experience not touristy but a true traveler. The price we paid it seemed very convenient.

  • Every morning there is a market on the river. We went there at six o'clock with one of the many boats that are ready for tourists to the market. As in all boats in Viet Nam is wearing a life jacket required. Depending on the place where your journey is about a 20-minute boat ride before the market can be achieved. In the middle of the River are a large number of ships with their merchandise on board. What they are selling is seen in the mast (or put up a stake) in which an example of the merchandise is hung. Around those boats sailing small boats with people who purchases do come. The whole is a fun lively face. It is important to be here on time because after 8 hours the market is gone.

  • We had a really great time with Susan Bui. She took us to places around Can To that we would certainly not otherwise have seen and experienced. It was a true privilege to cook a local dinner and spend...  read more »
  • I was born and raised on the river Mekong my family and living by driving a fishing boat from the year two thousand I was sailing for foreign guests to visit the market and discover that life on the Mekong under of the company and the hotel I was really dissatisfied and feel ridiculous when they sell tickets that pay astronomical prices for our cheap then today I opened this site for people and tourists know come up with a more reasonable price.
  • A visit to the floating market of Cai Rang is a compulsory visit for all tourists who want to experience the Mekong Delta. Highly recommended are the dried banana with ginger and sesame - a tasty snack! Be sure to get there quite early to avoid heat and crowds and see the market fully operating. Best to get a tour guide that will take you not only to the floating market, but also to narrow canals in the jungle where you can see the Mekong Delta countryside and attractions like rice noodles factory etc..
  • if you can reach this market during the sunrise you can enjoy the best moment for visiting this place
  • Great and a must-see for all tourist (especially non-Asians)
  • This market will be an unforgettable experience for visitors.
