Once visiting Tra On Floating Market in Vinh Long Province, tourists will be touched by witnessing the hardships of local sellers here.
Located at the intersection of the Hau and Mang Thit rivers and next to Tra On Town in Tra On District in Vinh Long Province, Tra On is the last floating market on the Hau River. Goods are wholesaled in groups and delivered to boats so the ambience of the market is less bustling than other local floating markets. There is not much laughter.
Early mornings, when the sun is still sleeping and the moon is blurring, sellers gather on their boats and offload their agricultural goods onto other boats that carry it all to Can Tho City or HCMC. The goods that move the most are fruits including coconut, banana, guava, pineapple, orange, jackfruit and pomelo.
