Day Trip
Hidden high up in the mountains, Can Cau Market is a small rural market where every Saturday local tribes gather to sell their goods and buy necessities for their homes. You can find colorful fabrics, extremely strong corn wine, and even all sorts of livestock at the buffalo market. If you wish to make a few new friends, let the locals buy you a few rounds of " ruou," a liquor made of rice.
