can tho - mekong delta day 2


On this morning we woke up at 4am to meet our guide and head to the famous Cai Rang floating market. The market is most active around 5-6am as the sun's first light becomes visible. Boats small and large are packed to the brim with all kinds of fresh produce and meat. Sellers entice customers by attaching one of each of the products they carry to a wooden pole that they hoist high above their vessel. During the rest of this 8 hour tour we visited a smaller floating market called Phong Dien and explored estuaries and villages around the delta (including a python farm... eek).
