Mekong Delta Floating Market

The Mekong Delta region in Vietnam is known for the early morning floating markets. I decided the best bet was to wake up before dawn (aka 4AM) and head off with a local tour guide to see the floating markets. We saw two types of markets – the first market started while it was still dark outside and sold vegetables that had a longer shelf life – such as potatoes, onions and garlic. The second market which begins around 6/7AM sells more day to day items that are fresh daily – such as bananas and pineapples. The boats travel from one canal to another until their boats are empty and the customers have fully bellys!
