Floating Market in Cai Be
Cai Be is a small division of Tien Giang Province, It is highly
recommended for foreigners who never know about floating
market. Floating market is a marketplace where sellers and
buyers travel on their boats to make deals or purchases. You will
find this kind of market very common in the Mekong
Delta region of Vietnam where waterway is closely attached to
people‟s daily life.
It‟s with good reason the Mekong Delta is known as the „rice
basket‟ of Vietnam and, in Mekong Cruises, you‟ll get a real
sense of the river‟s significance to South East Asia.The longtail
boats that shoot up and down the Mekong delta at break-neck
speed are burbling single-gear, car-engine affairs, and you‟ll
swear you‟re involved in some kind of drag race when your
captain has you belting up the water way, hair swept back and
tears ripping from your eyes. You‟re eyes will widen from their
squint though; there is no slowing down for the corners and
some frantic shifting of weight might be required to get the craft
around without hitting the bank.
