Cai Be is a small town on the northern side of My Thuan Bridge, located two hours from Saigon, and the gateway to Vinh Long province and the whole of the Mekong Delta.
There is a bustling floating retail market here ideally explored by sampan before midday.
There are also some old houses in Dong Hoa Hiep Commune, Cai Be. Best preserved ones include Ba Duc Old House, Cai Huy Old House and Anh Kiet Old House. They were built in old architecture typical in the region. Some were restored under the cooperation programme of the Vietnamese government and the Japan International Cooperation Agency, JICA.
Many of the small boats that cruise through the Mekong Delta start from here, and there is a thriving dockland area.
