We are staying in Can Tho for a few days whilst we get our visas extended. Its been a bit stressful as there have been some complications but I think its sorted now so we just have to wait until we can pick them up in Saigon in a few days.
Whilst here we visited the floating markets. They are quite a spectacle. We hired our boat and had to get up very early in the morning. The river is the easiest way to transport goods grown all over from the region and many travel to these markets to buy produce that is then sold in the cities.
Each boat has a long pole on which displays the produce that is on offer. Its great to watch as armfuls of pineapple or pumpkins are thrown over to the buyer.
