Basically a couple of barges with wholesale prices items. Don't have any romantic notions of local people trading/buying/selling items. You literally cruise past in a matter of seconds.

Floating markets, viewing only, not buying. They hang their produce or marketable items from the front of the boat so you know what they are selling. Lots of boats. Love their prop system, as they travel between shallow water and deep water. We travelled with...More

This was an ok attraction, just make sure to combine the river boat ride with other activities. I.e. a restaurant or home tour. It was a long day to leave Saigon and drive to the river.

Thank you Beyondthestars. As we have a some days in Ho Chi Minh, I think we will try to book it once we are in the city. Would hate to go all the way to Cai Be only to learn it is closed!
