This is a great place to buy souvenirs or just walk around, people watch and check out local fruit and food. Negotiating the price is a great entertainment of its own. Most vendors are friendly and are readily engaged. The variety, the colors, the smells and sounds - everything adds to the unique experience you would cherish...

We struggled here to shop, no one speaks english, they shake their head at you as if to say "I dont want to sell anything to you" its a market for the ben thanh stall owners to come and buy 100+ items at a time and then sell slightly higher. I wouldnt reccommend a visit here. then again its not... More

A shopping experience like no other. We were pulled and grabbed left right and center to buy anything and everything! Extremely busy but the place to be for clothing, accessories, food, shoes, watches... We had trouble finding shoe sizes above US10 but the rest of the clothing fit well. Just dont get offended if your usual size S is an... More

Take ten minutes and saunter through...not sure if there's anything you would want here that you "must have" but it is worth seeing! We were warned to keep your purse tight up under your armpit and be careful for pick pockets in the crowd. Interesting "smells" from vast variety of seafood and unknown things on display :-)

Very educational! Wow a very enlightening experience! People shop very early every day! The produce is so fresh. The variation of foods is mind blowing. They waste nothing which is good.

If you have a penchant for bargain and get a kick out of it...this is the place to be... Tips::: Dont give up on the bargaining and try to go as low as possible Carry Vietnam Dongs or you will get shortchanged due to the exchange rate manipulation

I like to take some visiting (foreign) friends to the Binh Tai market. Way better option than Ben Thanh. You are not being asked what you are looking for, or want to buy this or that, pulled inside little stalls all the time, not being "harressed" by sales people; it seems that the sales people at Binh Tai leave you...

if you want to knock off all your shopping in one hit, this is the place to do it. The market is huge and has everything you need under one roof. at night, it shuts and the two streets on either side become the night market and THE place to get some of the best, cheapest food you will ever... More

We chose a hotel 50 metres from the market-it was a great place to walk (or be jostled maybe) through at any time of the day. Fun to sit and have a snack or beer with the locals and watch the world go buy or stroll around and be amazed at all the exotic things on sale. At night the... More
