DAY 2: Cai Rang&Phong Dien Floating Markets-Tra Su Conservation-Chau Doc (B/L)
06:00am: hop on our car and drive to Phong Dien district (15km) and board on an arrow-boat and cruise to Phong Dien floating market. It is just stunning! What you need to do here is just sit back and watch the whole world of trading, mainly fruits and vegetables, going on from boats to boats as it has been going on for hundreds of years. Phong Dien is more of a rural and retailed floating market with many small and rowing boats. As our boat edges through the market, you will be surely driven back to the yester-centuries by the sound of bargaining, rowing, motoring mixed with the sound from the coffee boat, meat boat, grocery boat, ice boats…. Saying goodbye to Phong Dien floating market, our boat will speed up through many channels of the Mekong River stretching along rural villages and arrive in Cai Rang floating market (12km toward Can Tho)- it is much bigger and is more of wholesaled market with many more big and motored boats. And this will complete a special picture of around a million floating traders in this region who have been happily living a floating life and earn their living on some 50,000km of waterways in the Mekong Delta.
