14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Visiting floating markets in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam

Floating markets are one of the most interesting sights in the Mekong Delta. The markets are part of life along the river. In the early mornings, the waterway becomes a maze with hundreds of boats carrying grapefruit, mango, banana, papaya, pineapple, watermelon, rice and many other “basic” necessities, such as blocks of ice, cigarettes and beer.
