A Guide to Hau Giang Outdoor Farmers Market

One of the best highlight things to see and do in Hau Giang is the authentic Hau Giang outdoor farmer’s market in the early morning. This 700 m2 market is just about the traditional and cultural life in the Mekong Delta now and then. It is only 50km away from Can Tho city. The local name of the market is “Chợ Chồm Hổm” which located inside Vi Thanh market in Hau Giang province. This market is easy to reach by car and scooters. The busiest time to see the market is from early morning to 7:30 a.m. The market will be closing around 9 a.m to 10 a.m. Top tip: You should come to the market soon and have a cup of coffee to feel the insights of the Vietnamese’s culture market.

When visiting the Hau Giang province or doing any customized tours, choose reputable providers and boats equipped with lifebuoys and jackets. Safety is a priority!

Hau Giang is magnificent itself, but if you have enough time, don’t forget to put other places onto your bucket lists such as Lung Ngoc Hoang forest, Kittyd & Minnied amusement park…

Bring the raincoat if you travel to Hau Giang in the rainy season, as Hau Giang always looks fantastic in the full rain and full sun.

Best Rice Field in Mekong Delta

As Mekong Delta build up over the years, they get formed in the shape of a triangle and the deposits in this formation are of rich alluvium, which are ideally suited for growing wet rice. Biking and walking around the green or saffron yellow rice fields and learning deeply about the “white gold” in Vietnam are fantastic and educational experiences.
