2. Cai Be Floating Market
Cai Be Floating Market is still the principle attraction on a boat tour from Vinh Long, though it has shrunk considerably due to the building of bridges in the delta and the subsequent transportation of goods by road rather than river. The market is at its best around 6 a.m.. Wholesalers on big boats moor here, each specialises in different types of fruit or vegetable and hangs samples of their goods from tall wooden poles. It’s an hour by boat from Vinh Long.
