This day starts with a full morning by boat. A unique and famous feature of the Mekong Delta is the floating markets. Nearly every tourist goes to Can Tho for the famous floating market, but it has been overrun by commercial tourism. We go to a local natural floating market with a diverse range of products. Very few tourists get to see this phenomenal floating market. The boat continues on to a industrial rice market (no tourists) and it’s an opportunity to talk about the Vietnamese economy. We also go to a famous old house that has some of the oldest and most expensive wood in the country.
