It’s a site worth seeing. We left Can Tho at around 5:45am ish. After a nice river ride seeing the sun coming up, lots of other boats we arrived at a very busy floating market. It’s so interesting, fun and crazy, with lots going on....More

Travelled from HCMC to Can Tho mainly to see the floating market. Turned out to be an utter disappointment. There is no "market" to speak of. We were approached by 2 or 3 boats at arbitrary locations along the river trying to peddle us goods...More

Sailing down the river and feeling the fresh wind, taking a look at local people in their business. But honestly, the sun was burning hot, you should visit this market early ^^

The choices are geared more towards the tourists than with the locals. It is better to just skim through this floating market, then proceed and spend more time in the Phong Dien Market.

Place is a floating zoo but boat operators know how to get around safely. Very interesting and something you'll probably never see again. Well worth the time and experience.

We're told locals start around 3-4am at the market so if you're showing up after 7am, the activity is already starting to dissipate. We left hour hotel and were on the water by 6am and stopped for Bun Bo Hue noodles and managed to find...More

You should try Cai Rang since the venue is more convenient and I believe there are activities for you to enjoy over there. Cheers.
