Floating Markets & Gardens by Boat

Private tour options by boat to go to the Floating Market and the Mekong River in Can Tho. You will have your own boat, captain and a friendly English-speaking tour guide. 

Floating market tours start at 5:00 AM in the morning. Choose the longer 6-hour Can Tho Floating Market Tour visiting Cai Rang floating market, gardens, canals, the noodle factory and other stops at sights of interest starting at 69 $US per person (min. 2 people), or the 3-hour Cai Rang Floating Market Tour and nearby gardens starting at 49 $US per person (min. 2 people). Both tours include an English-speaking tour guide and a free taxi pickup at your hotel. 

In the afternoon you can choose a private Pagodas and Fruit Gardens Tour by motorbike or car with a friendly English-speaking tour guide and also experience a ride on a Sampan boat starting at 59 $US per person. 

The Mekong River is famous for its gardens and the floating markets. In Can Tho you can visit the Cai Rang floating market with their everyday trading. Many local products are sold here and in particular a large variety of fruits, some of which you might have never seen before. There are small boats offering all kinds of snacks and local soups from which you can get your early breakfast. 

The Can Tho markets are a great chance to see an authentic floating market with real trading going on. The Can tho floating markets are not just tourist markets like what you find in places like Bangkok. With more and more transportation moved to newly built roads around Asia, this might be one of your last chances to capture a bit of the old boat to boat trading atmosphere on the Mekong. But there is more to the Mekong river. Many small channels and fruit gardens along the river impress locals and tourists alike and make a boat trip at any time of the day a unique experience.

Private Boat Option 1 (Morning): Can Tho Floating Market, Noodle Factory, Gardens and more with tour guide, 6 hours, min. 2 people: Starting at 69 $US per person
