Tourist agencies said that the majority of tourists are very interested in Cai Be Floating Market - an attractive tourist brand for a long time; however, now because of quick development of road traffic, and more convenient than waterway, the floating market is no longer bustling as in the past. It is proposed that solutions to maintain the floating market should be given by the Government, as for funding sources and then shared by enterprises for implementation. At the same time, the government should further support travel agencies in promoting their propaganda, activities' images and tours; pay attention to develop transportation facilities (accesses to tourist sites, facilitate both roadway and waterway) as well as capacity building for professional staff in tourism.
