Visit Can Tho
Can Tho is the largest city in the Mekong Delta and its local canal network plays host to some bustling floating markets.
Cai Rang Market is perhaps the easiest to reach by boat. The markets are in full flow by 6am, with vendors selling a huge range of locally grown fruit and vegetables from the bows of their boats as customers paddle from one to the other haggling and chatting as they go.
It's quite a spectacle, an age-old trade played out on the waters of the Mekong.
