Not very impressed with this night market. We came here to look for an iPhone charger (at the recommendation of the staff at Bami Bread) since ours broke during the trip and prices for various charger cables were running anywhere from $50k dong to $150k dong for the same product - and the vendors with the higher prices are giving...

A very busy but organized market. Sometimes its hard to find a way through it because it is so packed with stuff and people. The front area is mainly selling food and snacks, at the back its souvenirs and handbags, upstairs you will find silk and clothes, etc. A great place to get some cheap souvenirs if you are good...

This is good for a walk around just to see the variety of food that the locals eat and use in their daily cooking. You will see many food items that you may not have seen before and many that I would not eat. The market is very busy and most locals still like to buy their produce every day... More

The market is a shoppers' paradise as the range of goods includes everything from food to clothes and manchester to accessories. However, prices are not very cheap! Not all stallholders are willing to bargain as we found and most do not speak English. If you are looking for something specific, it is difficult to communicate. Aisles are very narrow which...

It is worth a visit if you like shopping. The front sells dried food , souvenirs ,clothing while the top floors sell mostly clothing and fabrics. The prices of souvenirs and dried food are reasonable. But you need to bargain. While the prices of other goods are mostly fixed. There is no air conditional thus very hot and stuffy inside....

We were the only westerners in this place. It is spread over 3 floors with each floor specializing in something eg fabric or clothes. The walkways between the busy stalls are very narrow but a bustling place. You can probably buy anything you can imagine here. Worth a trip.
