The floating market is usually open all day. However, the most crowded time is the dawn (from 6 AM to 8 AM). Make sure to go early so that you can take nice photos about the entire vista. Don’t miss a chance to stop by one floating boat in the market, buy fruits or goods, and explore the lives of local people.

My Tho noodle soup is quite different from Hue beef noodle soup or Nam Vang soup because it  is the harmonious mix of soy bean, sweet broth, meat, noodles, lemon, chili, vegetables and soy sauce. Back in the 1960s, a store in the city started to serve this dish by using a secret recipe for the rice noodles. Up to now, its reputation has still become popular and influential in Vietnam.
 
With just 30,000 VND, you are able to enjoy a wonderful bowl of noodles that the sweet aroma of the broth is likely to come from harmony of the dried squid, meat, and special condiments. It is indeed a traditional dish specific to the South of the country.
