Often overlooked by visitors to Can Tho who just know the famous Cai Rang Floating Market, Phong Dien Floating Market is certainly less visited and less touristy.
Phong Dien starts around 4-5AM everyday and busiest around 7-8AM, located just 17km away from the centre of Can Tho. This floating market is among the busiest floating market with abundant and diverse products like fruits, vegetables, foods, household items, gasoline and working tools. Come to Phong Dien, you'll have chance to see the sampan boats, motorboats and big boats full of products cruising slowly on the river, making it such a unique, bustling and no less iconic scene only to be seen in this region.
Don't forget to enjoy the local delicacies being sold right on the boat like noodle soup, noodle with toasted meat, rice soup, Hu Tieu, and coffee, etc. In particular, there are dozens of ferry and vessels anchoring at the river's bank. They are ready to take tourists to visit the floating market.
Unlike Cai Rang market and other markets that close quite soon before noon, the activities in Phong Dien Market still goes on until afternoon.
