Cai Rang floating market is near the Cai Rang bridge, about 6 km far from the city. The market was formed in bygone days due to the fact that at that time, roads and vehicle were very limited so people chose to exchange, buy and sell agricultural products and goods on the river. Then it gradually became a market. Cai Rang floating market has gone through hundreds of years of development that has shaped the unique trading culture of the river region, which attracts many tourists to visit and buy products. Earlier, Rough Guide Tourism Magazine (UK) has voted Cai Rang floating market as one of the 10 most impressive markets in the world.

Also recognized as National Intangible Cultural Heritage of this time are: Nghinh Ong Festival (Ben Tre), Truong Dinh Festival (Tien Giang), Xuan Lai Bamboo Crafts (Bac Ninh), Cau Ngu Festival (Da Nang), Festival of Female General Le Chan (Hai Phong) and Ancient script of Thai people (Son La).
