Cái Bè town gets started early, and you’ll want to as well. Wake up at dawn for a magical ferry ride at sunrise, and ride a bicycle over the town bridges and through the morning markets. The Tiền riverside market is easily recognizable. Under the battered tarps, fresh fruit and flower vendors wait for customers while conversing with friends or playing Chinese Checkers. From there, head to Cái Bè Church, built by a Catholic German priest in the early 20th century. Look out for small pagodas, Buddhist shrines and Hindu temples scattered across town — a reminder of the multi-cultural character of the Mekong Delta.
