OVERVIEW

The Floating Market was once a center for local trade and authentic Vietnamese culture. However, the urbanization and flood of tourists greatly impacted this once quaint rural area. Now the market has only a few local merchants trading coconuts and bananas.

In 2015 a team of dedicated outdoor adventure guides decided the standard floating market experience needed to be updated to reflect the new Vietnam and the wonderful new experiences available in this beautiful area.

We’re proud to be the first company to provide a new way to experience the Mekong Delta and engage with the wonderful local residents from the vantage point of Kayaks. Our trip begins at the old “floating market” where you will experience first-hand the impact of tourism and industrialization.
