THE FLOATING MARKET TOUR $8/person (5:30-8:30 am)
The Cai Rang Floating Market which is the largest wholesale floating market in the Mekong Delta, starts around 05:00 and runs until around midday, meaning that you’ll have to get an early start to the day if you want to visit. We start at 5:30 at our Nguyen Lords Farmstay by boat.
The market is about 2,5 kilometres from our Farmstay or about a 15-minute boat ride. While floating down the river, you will glimpse life along its shores. You’ll pass vibrantly painted boats anchored along the shore, merchant vessels carrying loads down the river and houses built on stilts over the water.
After floating market, we get to walk around the biggest local market of district where local people come to buy their stuff. We will how people make purchase with their stuff which is so fresh and some local cake, biscuit that are included in the tour. After that, we get back on our boat and back to our Farmstay.
