But, if you don’t have enough time. We can do in 1 day. We have to start eary in the morning at 4.00 am. the market used to operate from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. and close before sunrise. Later on, due to the increase in tourism activities in Cai Rang, the market started operating from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. to serve tourists.
The River Mekong unravels into nine rivers, creating the fertile Delta as nowadays. Daily life in the delta flows with the ever-changing waters, rice fields are dug as the waters recede and fisheries thrive throughout the annual flood. Considered as the “Rice bowl” of Vietnam, Mekong Delta River brings the magic inside that appeals to all those who have come to this immense land. The Mekong Delta is completely focused around the water, which explains why the only way to navigate this region is by boat. You will see rice paddies, fruit orchards, and floating markets, Buddhist temples and family houses clinging to the river’s banks.
