This is a typical Asian market which you can get practically anything that you need in your normal daily life. You can buy the items in retail although you will get better price if buy in bulk (the sellers are mostly wholesalers). Anyway, the selling prices here are way cheaper than other places in HCMC, if not the cheapest. Yes,... More

Was there with a local student tour guide today. The stall will also sell an item to you although it's known to be wholesaler. According to the local, the price there was about 30% cheaper than those in town.

Nothing much here...just a normal market. Vendors selling repetitive items electrical cables, fabrics, food, fresh market items. Narrow lanes with plenty of traffic.

Double storey building, but they decided to shut down the escalator. The market is divided into sections. Quality of manufacture goods, like footwear are poor. Huge place. Initial price should be bargain. I bought cashew nuts from this place.

It's very crowded and hot in here. It's not really good for little kids. However, they sell pretty much everything at usually better prices than other locations. They sell bags, clothes, cookware, dried foods, hats, fans, etc. They sell a lot of every day items. A lot of what they sell is in bulk. They don't really lower prices here... More

It's actually more for foreign tourist! You can go there to have a look, or have some local drinks and coffee , but shopping there you would need to good at bargaining which is also tiring.

This market was quite overwhelming. However, it is worth a visit to learn and appreciate the migration of the Chinese into Vietnam. We were fascinated by the story of the founder and his economic struggles. If you are just visiting without some background, it just appears like another massive and dirty market. Since we only had an hour, we barely... More

Take bus no. 1 from Ben than bus station, near the petrol kiosk at the roundabout. Sit all the way till the end at cho lan bus terminal and the market is within walking distance. This is where the locals get their goods and re sell it to tourist. Many of the owners don't entertain you if you're getting only... More

This place is huge and sells almost anything. Be prepared to be hassled by all he stalls as you walk past. Remember to barter if you see something that you like. Good fun.
