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.

This was a wonderful experience. We have visited other floating markets around the world but we really enjoyed this one. The weather was perfect and we were finished with our trip before the crowds arrived. We bought a few cute souvenirs and enjoyed watching everyone....More

Visiting the Cai Be floating market was a real education, especially stepping ashore and visiting a workshop demonstrating the versatility of Vietnam's No. 1 agricultural product. In addition to being the main staple of just about every Vietnamese meal, rice is also used to make...More

There is no floating market in Cai Be. If you want to see about 6 big boats floating in the river, than that's the right adress for you - otherwise you should absolutely not go there. On the picture you see the "Cai be floating...More

A different but interesting experience. Probably not for the tourist to experience hands on but certainly you could see the experience and convenience for the locals. If a local it would certainly be a convenient and good way to shop.

You could almost think this now just a tourist trap, but I don't think it is. Very interesting to see a typical vietnamese market, with live fish and prawns on offer....certainly fresh!

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!
