Cai Be, a place of rich and dense vegetation.
Cai Be is a small district located at the entrance of the Mekong River. Due to the huge size of its floating market, it is an important economic center. Moreover, the economy of Cai Be depends heavily on the fruit crops that local farmers sell in this market.
Cruising the Mekong River is the best way to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the towns located along the way.
