The Mekong Delta is Vietnam’s vibrant hive, no more evident than at the Cai Be floating market. The mouth of one of Asia’s great rivers has many openings and the area is home to millions of people, but of the busy towns and markets in between, Cai Be is perhaps the most dazzling in colour and variety of produce. Shallow wooden boats adorned with verdant sprays of vegetables, fruit, rice and fish, oscillate all higgledy piggledy on the river, making this section of one of Asia’s great rivers the most spectacular and, alongside its rice fields, a veritable cornucopia.
