The first is the boats full of goods. Sounds weird right? It's like this, normally you can only see people gathering in the market and selling goods on the land, but selling goods on boats like this is almost nowhere to be found if you are in the North.\nEach boat will sell a different item, from delicious fresh fruits of the West to household items needed for daily life. Traveling to Can Tho 1 day, I have seen that the owners of the boats will hang the items they sell on a pole - known by the people here as a \"bump\" tree so that buyers can easily recognize it from afar. If I had the opportunity to visit the West River, I would never have been able to see and experience these \"strange\" things!\n\nAnd that's not all, breakfast dishes such as vermicelli, noodle soup ... and drinks with bean milk, coffee ... are also sold on the boat. I will never forget the feeling of sitting on a small boat swaying in the middle of Can Tho river and slowly enjoying a delicious bowl of Western noodle soup I used to eat with only 15,000 VND/bowl.\n\nThis can be said that it is the most interesting memory of my trip to Cai Rang floating market.
