CAI RANG FLOATING MARKET FESTIVAL – The third Cai Rang Floating Market Culture and Tourism Festival will take place in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho from July 7 to 9. This year’s festival aims to respond to Vietnam Tourism Day (July 9) and honor and promote the images and culture of Cai Rang floating market – a national intangible cultural heritage.
A number of activities will be held during the three-day festival, including a book exhibition, a photo exhibition, a seminar, a composite boat race, a parade of tourism boats, and the making of record-sized banh xeo (a type of savory crepe) – a specialty of southern Vietnam. The festival will also feature a display of local delicacies, cultural activities and folk games.
According to Nguyen Van Luan, Deputy Director of the Can Tho Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, this year’s festival will be held on a larger scale than previous years, with 14 activities, including four new activities and 10 upgraded activities to become a more unique and attractive festival, thereby attracting more domestic and foreign tourists.
The Cai Rang Floating Market, located about 6km from the center of Can Tho city, has been around for centuries. It is a prime example of the waterway market culture in the southwestern region, where people buy and sell goods on boats.
