Can Tho Floating Market

Can Tho (or Cai Rang) Floating Market is the most famous and biggest floating market in theMekong Delta . From the early morning, the waterway becomes a maze of hundreds of boats packed withfruits,vegetables,animals, foods,etc... Sellers hang a sample of what they have from thetop of a long pole so that buyers can see from a distance what they are selling. However, not all boats offer the things hanging on cay beo. If you see a cay beo with a coconut leaf, that means the boat itself is for sale.

There aresmall boats selling beer, soft drinks and wine going among the other boats to serve market-goers and visitors.

At Cai Rang Market, sellers do not shout out about their goods because their cries would be lost on the vastness of the river.
