Sprawling across street after street, hosting some 600 stalls in both the outdoor and indoor areas, the market jumps to life at the break of dawn, winding down around mid-morning. Awaken your senses with a walk around the maze of fresh produce, hot food, and handicrafts, immersing yourself in the market’s culture of bargain-hunting and haggling.

  • Probably the best in Saigon. The guides take all the tourists to the ben thanh market (middle of the city in district 1) but it is almost for tourists and much more expensive - you can find...

  • A big area - many stalls but with similar goods - mostly clothing but some shoes and bags. Quite large food stall and product area. Look for quality cotton and silk items at some stalls. BARGAIN!

  • Lot of things to see, but yes, there are a lot of bulk suppliers. Nevertheless you also can buy smaller amounts - recommended is the dried fruit and candy section. You can choose whatever you like to try (or maybe already know). We liked it.
  • It’s a wholesale market for local Vietnamese people . Probably they buy from factories and sell in wholesale to retailers. Product range is wide, from shoes to luggage trolley bags to chappals and shoes to cosmetics to dried meats … and much much more . Usually they just sell in wholesale , won’t entertain retail customers , but few of them will give you in retail . Unlike other markets probably there is no bargaining and the prices are fixed. Happy shopping 🤟🏻
