Nothing that can’t be seen anywhere else

A small market focussed on tourists. Nothing special there but a good place if you want to buy a last minute souvenir or fake sportswear

An okay visit. Good for souvenir shopping.

This place is located within the Marine Plaza. It's not a must visit, but if you are within the area or have nothing else to do, it's worth a stop-by. We spent about half an hour inside. Best if visited at night when most of the stalls are open. They sell about the same things, which can get boring after awhile. Your haggling skill is being tested in this place. You have to be firm with your price. Most of the time, we paid about half of their opening prices. It's a good place to get some souvenirs. This place would have been better if the Marine Plaza is fully developed. Otherwise, it's pretty empty. Finding a cab from this area is easy. WiFi is limited.

Good place to see

Went here with a local guide (recommended) and saw all the fresh seafood catch and produce. Similar to markets I’ve been to in Asia and South America. Cheap food stalls, clothing, and trinkets. Neat place to kill some time and take in the culture.

Good for a quick look

We had dinner in the vicinity and took a walk around the night market. Stalls sell similar items like sports shoes, bags, souvenirs and local handmade items. Not worth a special trip and only visit if in the area.

Okay Attraction
Oct 2017 • Couples
Not one of the best attractions to visit unless you want to buy some souvenirs. An attraction really that you can get done within half an hour. Many local food stalls but I only recommend if you have a strong stomach really. Pretty busy which is usual in most of such Vietnamese markets.Most stalls selling identical stuff with not too many varieties to choose from except maybe in the variation of colours. Would not strongly recommend the Halong Night market and feel it is not such a necessity to visit.

Pretty same, same but OK to kill some time.

It is what it is, a night market in Ho Long. A quick 4 minute $4Aus taxi ride from Vin Pearl, the market itself isn't very big but it is well set out with good wide walkways. Most of the stalls are pretty much same same, but the stall holders were polite and keen to barter. OK to kill some time if nothing else to do.

Not a must-see attraction

We visited this place after dinner, a quick walk from our hotel. I thought the Halong Night Market was a rather lackluster attraction. Most of the vendors on the ground floor area were selling exactly the same items, with perhaps some different color variations. That got old pretty quickly. We gave this area a quick once-over and decided that it wasn't worth exploring any further.

Great experience!

I loved this market. Yes, all the stalls had all the usual touristy stuff on them but the atmosphere was so fun, people everywhere, both tourists and locals. The food stalls were amazing- delicious local food, much more varied than just pho. (Not that I have anything against the tasty pho!)

An enjoyable time of haggling for bargains...
Nov 2016 • Solo
It is what it says on the tin as it were.. a market that takes place at night .. having said this, if you put aside the cheaper replicated everywhere products found on any market and the cheaper Asian trinkets, and really hunt for a cultural bargain, it's possible to find some real gems to take home. My advice is to go as they are opening 6pm/6.30pm as store holders are always keen to haggle with you to gain their first sale and to offer them good luck for the evening .. don't be afraid to haggle and make the seller your friend and you'll end up with something to treasure .. enjoy!!

Not worth it

Totally not worth it
Cheap crap you would find in an street market so unless you are looking for a cheap suitcase, I wouldn't bother. Nothing is good quality and all the shops seem to sell the same things.
