Vietnam - Chau Doc to Saigon by boat

In mid Feb I will arrive in Chau Doc from Phnom Penh and I am wanting to catch a boat (cheap option) from Chau Doc to Saigon.

Could someone please advise the time this would take, and any good operators. I would like to see the floating markets...

How much time should I set aside to get from Chau Doc to Saigon?

Thanks in advance

Chau Doc hey? ive only travelled from there to Can Tho which is about 5 hours by boat & can take up to 8 hours on the slow boat which is a waste of a whole day to save a few bucks if u ask me.

The floating markets u will see at both Chau Doc & Can Tho, where Can Tho is much larger & lively. I dont think you would have trouble organising transport from Can Tho to Saigon

Ho Chi Minh City...

Not possible to travel by boat from Chau Doc to Saigon, it can only be done by road. You can catch a boat as far as Vinh Long or My Tho and then pick up the road to Saigon from there, but not possible to go by boat all the way.
