    My family and I will be in Ho Chi Minh at the end of December, and we were planning to take a day tour to see the Mekong river and of course the floating market! I wanted to see if anyone knows if the floating market will be open during this time (December 29-30), as I've heard it isn't open year round. My second question is, since we are a family of four and it is during a busy time of the year, is it recommended to book a tour in advance online, or do you think we will be fine finding one in our hotel and/or other vendors once we arrive in Ho Chih Minh? Thank you!

    Answered by admin | 21 May 2019

    Good day, Pouzik It’s wonderful of choice for choosing Vietnam as your family’s holiday. For your first inquiry about Will Cai Be floating market open in December 29 – 30. The market will be opened during December 29 – 30, the only time that Cai Be floating market will “virtually” close which is Tet holiday, many vendors of the market often re-open their stores after at least 2 days of the Tet holiday and will be fully opened in the 15th of March. With the second inquiry about Booking tour through online website or hotel. My best suggest is throughout website because your booking will be reserved and you can freely cancel 45 days before the tour occurred with full refund but the transaction fee will paid by you Best Regards From Stacy (Ms.)

The floating market does not have many sellers. The people actually live and work on the boat. Kayaking and biking were good experiences. The lunch was good. We didn't get to go to the fruit plantations, but we can see the fruits trees when we biked through the village.
