  • There is a lot of food and things sold here. My dad and I went here in the watermelon season so there were a lot of watermelon. It was also pineapple season so there were also a lot of pineapple...  more »
  • This is not what it used to be. Because of bridges there is little need for a floating market as people now have access to both banks of the river.  more »

  • I have to say, that this was an experience with many mixed emotions. Of course, I went for the floating market, and I already did read, that it not were much to speak of in reality, but I noticed, that many of the tourist complaining had been there during daytime. Often these floating markets are the busiest in the very early morning hours, simply because they feed the on land markets with fresh produce, so I went up at 4 am and drove there from Vinh Long on my scooter and was there at a little later than 5 am. The on land market really is amazing, with so much fresh produce, which is nowhere to be found in Europe. But the floating market is almost none existing. I did end up paying 150.000 for a very short boat ride around the harbor, with some crazy lady, who screamed at my so loudly, that I thought she were yelling to people in distant boats. We never went near any boat on the river and they didn't seem to be open for business either. Back on land again I finally got breakfast, which simply is the most overcooked and bland meal I have ever got. So much delicious and fresh produce, and this is what they do with it. The best part of the trip definitely were the ride to and from on the scooter
  • It's a tourist trap as all the commonly visited floating markets. Ensure carefully what you will see during the boat trip before you pay and negotiate the price, they are quite flexible. Go in the morning. Around lunch time there are just a few boats on the river.
