HÀ NỘI — The Cái Răng Floating Market, one of the largest floating markets in the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta, is a must-see destination in Cần Thơ City as it reflects the delta’s colourful river life.

Located in Cái Răng District about 4km away from Ninh Kiều Wharf, the floating market is open all day but is busiest from 5am to 9am. Hundreds of small and large boats sell all kinds of goods, mostly agricultural produce.

Many of the boats are the houses of traders whose families live on them year-round.

Cần Thơ City has approved a project worth VNĐ63 billion (US$2.8 million) to upgrade the market and improve tourism services. —VNS
