The Ngã Năm (five-way intersection) floating market in Sóc Trăng Province’s Ngã Năm Town is one of the oldest and most attractive floating markets in the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta.

About 60km away from Sóc Trăng City, the market got its name from being located on the five-way intersection of the Quảng Lộ - Phụng Hiệp, Xáng and Xẻo Chính canals.

Hundreds of big and small boats sell and buy all types of goods at the market every day. Each boat will hang a few samples of the products it sells on a bamboo pole so buyers can clearly see them.

The ideal time to visit Ngã Năm floating market is early in the morning, as the boats are full of goods and ready for trading.-VNS
