Mekong Delta Floating Markets // Can Tho, Vietnam


Riding in a boat for seven hours through the Mekong Delta region was probably one of the most wonderful experiences I have had since the beginning of my travels. I generally love begin on water, and to see a community and system of commerce in these waterways was such a treat!

In this video, I take you along as we visit the Cai Rang and Phong Dien floating markets. We also stop by a rice noodle maker and a local village. See how the locals live and work on and around the water while taking in the breathtakingly lush environment.

-I stayed in Can Tho, a quieter city from the tourist hub of the Delta region, My Tho
-I arranged the tour with my hotel. From what I can tell, this is a tour set up by a local agency with a standard price across the board. Leave in the comments if you find a similar tour of different cost.
-There are two tours you can take: a 3-hour ride or a 7-hour ride
-For the 7-hour tour, it’s $38 per boat, which carried up to 3 people. I don’t have the cost of the 3-hour excursion.
-You’ll be picked up at your accommodation at 5:30 AM and be brought to the dock. The cost is included in your purchase.
-Bring money for lunch, beverages, anything purchased at the markets, and a tip for your driver.
-Bring water, sunscreen, and plastic bags to waterproof your valuables.
-Life vests are provided in case of an emergency.
-When you return, there will be no transportation provided back to your accommodations.
