The Central Market is quite something

One of the Delta’s “liveliest and most interesting” markets, says Rusty Compass -- and “also one of the friendliest.” The central market “alone” justifies a stop Chau Doc, writes Michelin Travel. “Covering several blocks and extending down to the river, it is one of the best provisioned in Southern Vietnam as well as being one of the most photogenic.” Its regional specialities include dried fish, tamarind paste, coconut- and mango-flavoured sweets, palm sugar, lotus seeds and sugar palm fruit -- “a real feast for the senses.”
