No, unfortunately it is not possible to visit Cai Rang floating market in a 1-day tour from Ho Chi Minh City. The market is only held in the morning and due to the distance from Ho Chi Minh City it is not possible to get there on time.
It is possible to bring all your luggage, however it is recommended for easier traveling to only bring a bag with things you need for 2 days and overnight stay and leave the rest in the hotel if you choose to return their again after the trip.
Due to the construction of roads, more and more goods are transported by truck and less by rivers. Unfortunately, this also means that there are fewer boats on the market than, for example, 10 years ago. However, there are still enough boats left to form a great market and this tour is much more than just a visit to Cai Rang floating market.
