Vietnam continued, Can Tho, floating markets and street scenes

Next stop was Chau Doc and Can Tho. Can Tho is located on the south bank of the Hậu River, the bigger branch of the Mekong River.

It’s famous for its floating markets where boats and all manner of waterbourne vessels via for customers.

Here’s some traders rowing their sampans and some adorable local kids helping their parents sell!

Here’s some of the local markets on the shore line. I love the photo of the women all gossiping as they sell, until I visited Vietnam I really thought the conical hat was just a stereotype, but they really do all wear them!

The produce is so fresh it literally hops out of the baskets. The plastic tubs in the pic on the left are full of fish, shrimps, crabs and other watery edibles!

Bundles of lemon grass jostle for space with vivid dragon fruit and hairy rambutans and a host of wild and wacky food stuffs!
