Boats lie anchored in a canal off the Song Hau River in the floating Cai Rang Market in Can Tho.

The Telegraph particularly mentions Cai Rang Market as biggest one of its kind, located in Can Tho City.

Foreign visitors can reach the market by first flying to Ho Chi Minh city, from which it is convenient to reach the Mekong Delta provinces by bus. A regular bus ticket for around $6 takes visitors on a three-hour ride to Can Tho City.

In October, the U.K-based business site Business Insider selected Vietnam’s Mekong Delta among 13 best destinations for year-end travel.
