We offer two private tour options for Floating Market Tours in Can Tho. With your own boat and personal driver you can either choose the longer 7-hour Cantho River Tour visiting both markets (Phong Dien and Cai Rang), gardens, canals, noodle factory and other stops at sights of interest starting at 39 $US per person (min. 2 people), or the 3-hour Cai Rang Market Tour and nearby gardens starting at 24 $US per person (min. 2 people).

The floating markets of Can Tho, Cai Rang and Phong Dien floating market, are famous for its 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. It is 16 km to Cai Rang floating market and around 32 kilometres to get to Phong Dien floating market from Can Tho pier. During the tours you will have the chance to see the nature of the Mekong delta and if you are lucky some wild animals.
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 build 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.
