We went on a cruise on the mighty Mekong, stopped by the Cai Be floating market and tried elephant ear fish for dinner. Cruising along the canals, rivers and backwaters, we discovered how the local people lead their lives. We visited a congested flotilla of boats selling all manner of fruit and vegetables at Cai Be's floating market. We also stopped by some family-run industries, which include a rice paper, popcorn and popped rice factory.We stayed in a home-stay situated on an island in the middle of the Mekong River. After two days we set off on the riverboat back to Cai Be and returned to Ho Chi Minh in the afternoon
Cai Rang Floating Market
Hire a boat to witness the early morning Cai Rang floating market, which is the biggest of all the floating markets in the Vietnam Mekong Delta region and enjoy a bowl of noodle for breakfast on the floating market. It is the least explored city in Mekong Delta with hardly few tourists wandering along its streets.
