My Tho was founded in the 1680s by Chinese refugees fleeing Taiwan when the general of the Qing Dynasty Shi Lang defeated the reminents of Southern Ming Dynasty in 1683 ...


The Southern Sector of Vietnam, the 13 provinces of the Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh City, Long An, Tay Ninh, Binh Duong and Baria-VungTau is responsible for approximately half of the nation’s population and 70% of the national GDP. Ho Chi Minh City, the major International gateway to Vietnam, and the country’s commercial hub is home to Tan Son Nhat airport and currently 60 minutes’ drive from My Tho, the provincial capital of Tien Giang Province, population approx. 160,000.

The Trung Luong Elevated Highway has opened since Mar 2010 has cut the journey from Ho Chi Minh City to My Tho City from 90 minutes to 45 minutes by car or 60 minutes by bus. Tien Giang province is visited or passed through by 30 million people annually, on National Highway 1A, and is the headquarters of our company, Tien Giang Tourist.

As the regional capital My Tho is the main market dealing in all the produce from the region as well as fish and seafood from My Tho's large ocean going fishing fleet. The very large and exuberant market is one of South Vietnam's biggest sources for dried fish and other dried seafood products such as Kho Muc (dried squid). At night the market is dedicated to the dealing and sorting of Mekong River fish, particularly catfish for Ho Chi Minh City's wholesale markets. Produce, especially fruit and vegetables, is delivered by boat directly to the market. It is a popular starting point for tourists to take a boat trip on the Mekong River.

Tien GIang is home to Cai Be Floating Market – Vietnams very own ‘little Venice’, a delightful community spread between two river junctions, forming an ‘H-shape’. Very early every morning, or perhaps very late at night, the traders work loading and unloading their boats with fresh produce to trade wholesale at the floating market. This is an attractive sight for tourists, yet not a ‘tourist trap’ , it is a real working market, not a show – vendors display fruit hanging from poles at the bow of their wooden boats, displaying what produce they sell, bananas, coconuts, water melons, pomelo, etc. There are even small hand-rowed boats featuring mobile cafes, coffee and soft drinks bottles displayed on little ‘bars’ in the form of a box in front of the lady rowing the boat across the river in a standing position.

Tiền Giang quê hương của chợ nổi Cái Bè – một nơi mang đậm chất rất riêng  “little Venice”, một màu sắc cộng đồng thú vị trải rộng giữa hai mối nối bờ sông , tạo thành một hình chữ H. Vào mỗi sáng sớm hoặc có lẻ rất muộn vào ban đêm, các thương nhân làm việc bốc dở tàu của họ với các  sản phẩm tươi ngon đến “tay “các lái buôn tại chở nổi.Đây là một cảnh rất hấp dẫn khách du lịch, nhưng không phải là một “cái bẫy du lịch”, đó là một thị trường thực sự, không phải là 1 show- hiển thị các nhà cung cấp trái cây được treo trên cột mũi thuyền của họ, trưng bày những cái mà họ bán như : chuối, dừa, dưa hấu, bưởi…vv. Thậm chí có những chiếc thuyền nhỏ được những cô gái đứng chèo bằng tay có tính năng như quán cà phê di dộng : cà phê, nước ngọt .. được trưng bày như một bar nhỏ với một cái hộp ở phía trước.
