Floating markets among best photogenic destination

UK newspaper The Telegraph has listed the floating markets in the Mekong Delta among the 10 best places to take photographs in Southeast Asia.

Early in the morning, when the market is at its busiest, is the best time to visit and take pictures, it said.

Boats of all shapes and sizes converge on the markets, selling a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and fresh seafood or functioning as floating food stalls, selling popular snacks and beverages.

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

Foreign visitors can reach the market by taking a bus to the delta from Ho Chi Minh City, with a regular bus ticket costing around 6 USD.
