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

This place is another trash. It is hot, stuff, poorly ventilated and a fire hazard. Nothing much to see or buy except for heaps of fake designer bags, fake brand name clothes, etc. After walking in it for 10 mins, you will be drenched in your own perspiration. Not a comfortable to do any shopping. It does however let you... More

Great Palace to know vietnanmese handicraft and meals. This is plenty of shops that fill our eyes of colours and our nossa of flavours. But if you want to buy something bargain!

I could say this market is a wholesale market. Most of the seller sells their item in bulk. It's cheaper compared to ben tanh market but you have to purchase in large quantity.
