Floating market

We left our Can Tho hotel by boat this morning to visit the nearby floating market. Growerss bring their produce to the market by boat and sell to shop-owners and restaurants every morning. Each boat puts a sample of whatever they have to sell up on a tall stick so buyers can find what thet want. 

There is even a coffee lady and a floating pho joint on the water.


It was wonderful to get my iced coffee fix from a woman in a boat who pulled up to ours to take our orders. Iced coffee was 10,000 dong or about 50 cents. 

Our excellent guide Kien explained what was going on in the market and our boat and our boat pilot manouvered us arounnd all the buyers and sellers. Fantastic morning!
