Cai Rang floating market is about 6 kilometers from Can Tho, the biggest city in the Mekong Delta. It is quite an experience to see, especially if you get on a boat and immerse in it first-hand. There are many traders and heavy traffic on the water, so to find out what each merchant sells, each boat has a sample of a product tied to the high pole.
The best time to visit the market is early morning at about 7 am. You can rent a boat from Can Tho, or take a much shorter 10-minute ride from Cau Dau Sau. If you take a tour, you will also have breakfast included and explore some canals of the Delta. While exploring nearby canals you will see rural life of people living by the river.
Cai Rang is a wholesale market, but still, you will be able to buy and try local treats, as it has become a tourist attraction in recent years. Cai Rang has been listed as one of the most interesting floating markets in South East Asia.
