We are picked up in the hotel lobby at 8 AM by local tour guide and the driver then we travel to Cai Be colorful floating market, is known as a wholesale floating market. The wholesalers on big boats often moor here. The buyers often take the smaller boats so they can easily find what they are looking for following the tall wooden poles which hang samples of the goods on the big boats. Here, the boat will take us among local barges full of fruits and vegetables. We then stop at local workshops to see how rice paste, coconut candy, and pop-rice, pop-corn made.
