Floating markets Kayrang and Phung Hiep in the Mekong Delta (city Tankho, Vietnam) are in the course of half an hour by boat from each other.
We wanted to get on both, so we left at 4 am and arrived at the first literally 15 minutes before the opening. Of course, no doors are not here, just at dawn, people are starting to crawl out of their boats in which people live there, and arrive from the surrounding villages.
Gradually start trading, turning half an hour of sleeping in the rough. Local selling mainly vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, bread, herbs, flowers and much more. Visit these markets can only being in the boat.
Even in these markets can sometimes be found Vacancies vendors or service personnel.
