Markets
 
Countryside Market
Many communes in rural Vietnam feature countryside markets (cho que).
There are two main types of countryside market: the fair and the evening market. Fairs are held periodically. For example, it may be held on days with the numbers three and eight, which would imply fairs on the 3rd, 8th, 13th, 18th, 23rd and 28th days of each lunar month. Major markets attract huge numbers of people.

Apart from local products, visitors can find industrial and expensive commodities produced in other localities. Of course, necessities such as fruit, oil, salt and vegetables are always available.
 
Highland Market
Markets in highland areas where ethnic minorities reside are not only places of commerce, but also cultural festivals
People wear their nicest clothes and spend some days at the market. They may play their pan-flutes, dance, sing and meet new friends. Therefore, markets in highland areas are also called Love Markets (Cho Tinh).
 
Floating Markets
There is a very interesting kind of market in the Mekong River Delta. Thousands of boats gather to form a place of economic activity.
On a cho noi (floating market) all trade activities take place on boats. The largest cho noi include Phung Hiep, Nga Bay, Phong Dien (in Hau Giang), Cai Rang (in Can Tho) and Cai Be (in Tien Giang). Most of the agricultural productions sold in cho noi are for wholesalers, who then re-sell it to food processing factories or ship it to the north.

rading activities take place all day, but the most exciting time is in the morning when boats arrive loaded up with agricultural products.
