Cai Rang may not match the magnitude of the bazaars in Marrakech, but it is undoubtedly the most out-of-the-ordinary market in the world. It is the largest floating market in Mekong Delta. Welcoming visitors to a few hours filled with intriguing sights, smells, and the right dose of adventure, Cai Rang is just a couple of kilometers away from Can Tho.
In this wholesale market, you will have to check out each boat to see what they are selling, which only adds up to the fun. The produce you will find in the market depends on whether you come in the rainy or the dry season. Also, similar to the ground markets of Vietnam, shopping goes hand in hand with eating and drinking. Among fruit vendors, boats selling wine and beer come to the rescue of thirsty shoppers. Others await offering fresh-cooked traditional street food. These make your time in Cai Rang all the more memorable if you choose to explore the market by boat. Otherwise, head up to a vantage point to capture the invigorating scene. Colorfully-dressed merchandisers flow in harmony with the shine of the many goods they offer.
