The traditional markets of Ho Chi Minh City continues with a visit to the unique Kenh Te Floating Market on Tran Xuan Soan Street alongside the Kenh Te Canal. Although you're on dry land at he little market on the side of the road, unlike the floating markets of the Mekong River Delta it is a unique setting. Vendors selling fruit mostly come from various provinces of the Mekong River Delta Region, which is where most of the fruit grown in Vietnam is grown. These sellers live on their boats that are moored on the canal and live a relatively modest life. With the waterfront setting it's nice to visit an hour or two before sunset, but you will have to be mindful of the volume of traffic that travels along Tran Xuan Soan. Getting some wonderfully fresh fruit, engaging with these super friendly folks and supporting their community is a truly unique attraction and one which few visitors to the city ever take the time to experience.Hope you enjoy the video and thanks again for watching!
