Can Tho's Floating Markets

After our Singapore weekend jaunt, I returned to Jakarta and Tim went on to Can Tho, Vietnam for some meetings.  Can Tho is located in the Mekong Delta and is known for its floating markets, where locals buy and sell fruits and veggies on the river from boats piled high with produce. 


Tim got the opportunity to visit one of those floating markets early one morning and take some photos:


Above, a couple boats on their way to the market.  Below, Tim's boat approaches:

Watermelon, anyone?
