From spice to clothes, from faux designers bags to fresh off the boat seafood. This place has everything! Ohhh the vibrant colours of different rows. Shop owners will call you out from far, follow you around till the the end of the rue if you touch something. Just trying to pursue you to buy it, nothing wrong with it, they are very polite and courteous. The best things probably about this place was the people. We went here twice, once in the morning the the next day in the evening. The vibe was brighter in the evening but the level of enthusiasm in sellers was still the same as morning. I was fairly impressed with the quality of fabric available here, had I known in advance I would have packed lighter. We walked around a bit then came back from a snack, went around a little more and then had some fresh juice. Just walking around this place was so much fun. If you like shopping no better place than this for cheap clothes, lengths of fabric choices, leather and faux leather goods, decorative items etc. You name it they have it. A lot like Thailand's famous Chatuchak market but somehow with much nicer people.

If your just visiting Asia then sure, we all love a deal and some knock off things. But to be honest I didn’t think this was any better than those found in other Asian countries such as Cambodia and Thailand. Impacted by Covid, but the range is all very same same. If you are on the larger size or shoe size of 43 and above, don’t get too excited as the options will be limited

Have been to many many markets across Asia. They all vary in there own way, but one thing in common, is that they are all busy, and a burst of colour. Ben Thanh Market has the lot and more. Do shop for souvenirs, and do barter. Also grab a bite to eat.
