A good place to buy souvenirs as you can get cheap price as in the night market. On weekend nights, the street also is the venue for the night market. It sells everything, too bad we don't have much time to do window shopping. Be sure to haggle everything you're buying.

Huge wholesale market with a lot of different things for sales. From clothings to toys to accessories,you can almost find everything here. However,it's warmth,crowded and noisy. Do beware of pickpockets.

Dong Xuan Market is not for the faint hearted!, there are absolutely piles of goods for sale, stall holders seem to sleep on their stock, oh well it was hot, it is a wholesale market, and good for a walk around. We didn't buy anything but there was some amazing silk fabric on the first floor. Good for a walk... More

Store holders rude! Wholesale selling mostly so they won't serve you ! You can buy same items off street..... But be aware in some cases they will not serve you either claiming to be wholesalers! Not sure that is the case!!

Difficult to shop here due to language constraints and lots of bargaining . However, this is a good place to buy souvenirs as it is much cheaper that the outside market and a wider range to chose from.

Imagine a 3 level market with lots of stalls and thousands of people without any AC or other way of airflow...thats it...you are in Dong Xuan market. Theres alot of things you can buy here, materials, shoes, souvenirs, hats,...but clothes, shoes, materials are mostly for local buyers who will sell it later in their small shops. Was weird to see...
