Why go to Cai Be?
Stops here offer insights into how important rice is to the Vietnamese culture
The floating market is only a tiny remnant of what it once was
Works best as an introductory port when starting your cruise in Vietnam
Currency & Best Way to Get Money?
The official currency in Vietnam is the dong. You'll want to have dong in hand by the time you get to Cai Be or exchange money on your riverboat as there is nowhere to get money during your tour. Street vendors, including those with a small table of handmade items or kids and women selling items like straw hats, postcards or bookmarks, accept dollars.
