In the morning, we returned to the Mekong River and boated up to the busy Cai Rong market in Can Tho. There, boats overflowed with pineapples, watermelons, and cabbage being sold wholesale to locals cruising up in smaller vessels.
One of the most crowded floating markets in Mekong Delta is Cai Be. Taking a motorized boat to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Cai Be floating market with various fruits and good, you will have unforgettable experiences.
Before experiencing the best of the Mekong Delta, my imagination cruised me down quiet rivers shaded by palms, while other sampans paddled over to sell me tropical fruits.
Laos is a truly captivating country, with its gentle pace inviting the visitor to slow down, relax and absorb the beauty of their surroundings. Mekong River runs the entire length of the country, with the river and its many tributaries being integral to the Lao way of life, providing fishing, irrigation, transport and fertile farmland along the delta.
In a world of highlights, this would be my number one, with an afternoon spent wandering through a small river village. As we docked the boat, the sounds of the radio permeated through the trees on the river bank.
