Early in the morning (say from My Tho), do a boat trip out to the market, returning to Vinh Long by early afternoon with plenty of time to push onto Can Tho. Most trips to Cai Be run for at least three hours as the trip there takes about 45 minutes each way (depending on the route taken and the boat used).
From the Vinh Long river bank, if you look to the west you can see the twin towers of the My Thuan Bridge jutting into the sky. Built with considerable financial assistance from Australia, the bridge did away with the ferries and greatly improved access to the greater Delta from Saigon -- one wonders though why it is so high -- perhaps the AusAID officials in Saigon wanted to be able to point out its spires from their offices.
