Come here early in the morning for an authentic Vietnamese breakfast. Then as the stalls open you can browse for many local products and souvenirs. I prefer this to Ben Thanh market where the sellers are quite persistent and hard selling with some of them catching your arms as you walk by. Binh Tai market is my choice.

One of the most dangerous markets I've been to , very intimidating , pressing hard for the sale and honestly watch your jewellery , had a girl tried to unclip my gold bracelet whilst serving me , some good bargains if your size is like Vietnamese , some nice sandals I picked up .

Never buy at first price, even if for you is already an incredible cheap you can still ask at least 50% discount , they love to bargain and they will lways tell you it was a bad business day so they want you be happy and offer you the best price, it is funny . But they have good quality... More

As always I love a bargain and you need to be persistent but you might get one here. A very typical southeast asian market - very busy, noisy and touristy. If you don not like those do not go there if you like it one of the best!!

The market seems to only have about 4-5 stores/selections, just repeated indefinitely. Not a lot of variety, and the prices/quality weren't as good as other stores just a few blocks away. Very pushy, even for the area.

It's Saturday in Ho Chi Minh and just like anywhere else, let's go shopping! This is the wholesale market in the Chinatown district and it is where the myriad of small stall holders come to shop for next week. It is a beguiling oz of sounds and smells and at times the raucous sounds of Asians doing battle. Great fun... More

Good market to look around and get an idea of what prices to try for in other markets as at least here they are marked, although everything we looked at seemed to be wholesale so was hard to shop

Let's just say it's quite a nice cultural experience but keep your phones and bags strictly intact. Was at a restaurant having lunch and the lady boss warned us not to wander too far away as snatch thieves and robbers thrive even in broad daylight. Kinda hateable when you need 101% vigilance and firmly clasp on your belongings to go... More

We visited this market in Chinatown as part of a day tour. Fortunately it was not a hot day, however, it was still stuffy inside. It is huge, there is so much to see. We only walked through some sections, including fabrics, hats, hairpins (yes stalls with millions of different hair clips!) and the food stalls, where we stopped and... More
