CAI BE, THE HIDDEN CHARM OF THE MEKONG DELTA

Cai Be is a discreet but endearing destination. Located in the heart of the Mekong Delta, the river town of Cai Be is a stopover to be cherished for the travellers wishing to discover a more confidential Mekong Delta. Cai Be has enough to awaken and stimulate your senses with its floating market and its superb walks and bike rides in its bewitching countryside.

The floating market of Cai Be

On the front branch of the Mekong River, on the Tien River, at the intersection of the three provinces of Tiên Giang, Vinh Long and Bên Tre, the floating market of Cai Be is held daily and has been in operation since the 19th century. The floating market of Cai Be is one of the most beautiful in the Mekong Delta. Every day, well before dawn, the river becomes the stage for a stunning spectacle where dozens and dozens of boats perform an extraordinary river ballet. Cai Be is a wholesale market. Small boats come to deliver or buy supplies from the larger ones, each of which specializes in selling or buying fruits or vegetables. To make yourself known, you hang the fruit or vegetable for sale on the end of a pole that you place at the front of the boat. We advise you to get there very early in the morning to enjoy the entertainment and why not have breakfast on the water with street vendors who, on rowing boats, come to support the traders.
