Floating market floating Long Xuyen

The Mekong Delta has hundreds of markets gathered in the river; Boutiques, stalls and means of transport are all by boat, boat of all kinds and large. Whether large or small, the floating market has the same lifestyle and buy the same. Long Xuyen floating market is not famous but has the opportunity to visit, visitors still feel the rustic style of the people of Nam River.

About 2 km from the center of Long Xuyen city, down the boat ferry O Lau sailed across a river crossing the Long Xuyen floating market. The big boats are closely monitored, sometimes even tied together in groups of agricultural products, people go back and forth between the boats as if going through the adjacent stalls or houses in the street. In the picture is a row of bananas.   Agricultural products, fruits of all kinds, such as banana, grapefruit, coconut, pineapple, mandarin, orange, papaya ... around the focus on selling to the bowl and will be transferred to the city for consumption. Boat rafts come in and out, bustling up and down. The bustling laughter of the cheerful buyer echoed across the river.   Like other floating markets, people hang the fruit on the pole (called the candy) to advertise items to buy, to sell. Hang on a corner of the river crowded boat, it is also available for sale. Small boats are washed between the boats ready to serve beverages, coffee and breakfast items such as rice noodles, noodles, noodles ... Petrol also has a mobile shop, and mechanical repair shops are always on hand, ready to serve on the spot. Houses on the shore to the river also, Floating family houses also and even the boats are also houses of floating market residents. Except for water for cooking, drinking, all other needs are water from the river.   The floor area on the roof of the boat is narrow but the space is large enough for the children to live on the boat dropping kites flying soaring into the sky. Do not know these children have the wings for adults to dream in life, escape from this bồng river floating?
