    Our preferred market
    We visited this market three times over three days. Much more relaxed than other markets and vendors not pressuring us to buy. Great deals on winter brand name coats and great deals on workout clothes too. We bought from some lovely people and enjoyed our visits

    Good markets for colder climates
    2 story market with mainly clothes. Only a short walk from Ben Thanh Market and well worth the trip if you are looking for colder climates (rain jackets, long sleeved tops, jackets, jumpers, socks) though they do sell summer stuff too. Pricing was good and stall holders relaxed. It was narrow but most markets are. Would recommend here and Saigon Square markets over Ben Thanh as prices cheaper and stall holders less pushy.

    Great Market for winter gear deals
    Great shopping especially for winter clothing and outdoor clothing. Tucked arround the back ground floor is a great shop selling Russian and other Eastern Europe food and other international products. Prices seemed reasonable compared to other markets. No ATM so take cash but vendors do take credit cards.

    Great selection of knock-offs and affordable warm clothing.
    Great selection of knock-offs and affordable warm clothing. If you missed out buying all the snow and trekking gear in Hanoi, this is the goto place. Its very jam-packed with hundreds of stalls/shops. Check all the competitor prices as they vary substantially. If you are good at bargain it will be a pleasure.

My wife and I enjoyed our shopping experience here. Bought some shirts and jackets and the selection to chose from was large. The quality of the jackets was very good I must say, I carefully inspected stitching and waterproofing and have been wearing at home for one month now. Very impressed and jackets tagged Goretex are indeed completely water proof and comfortable. Also got some sports clothes, running jackets etc and again very impressed. I have no hesitation in recommending this place for clothing. Vendors are honest about sourcing and quality when asked.

Total size was about half a soccer pitch. There were T-shirts and some winter jackets all of which were overpriced (example $70 Australian for puffer jackets that are clearly knockoffs) and the vendors were certainly not interested in bargaining. We were the only Westerners there, it took maximum 10 minutes to walk around and look at exactly the same stuff in each store all of which was bland. Whilst Ben Tanh market is hot, the vendors hassle you, at least it’s interesting. I would not waste one minute of your holiday at this place.

Tried to negotiate but they didn't come down enough. They wanted 100 USD for fake LV bags. LoL. Perhaps they don't travel much and know these cheap copies can be purchased anywhere. Mostly over priced junk. You may get lucky and find a couple of actual made in Vietnam products like North Face that are original. But most stuff is rubbish and no actual cotton shirts, all polyester mix. Fake cotton tags. Don't waste your time and money.

If you want a coat or T-shirt and aircon, then this is an option.
Personally I’d rather be in a market or street and found this to be like many other Asian low end small malls

We were intrigued by the reviews and decided to stop by on our way to the Saigon Center. It's definitely an interesting place with a variety of clothes (a lot of winter coats, lingerie, shoes, bags, sparkly dresses, etc). It didn't seem like much bargaining was happening, but we walked out with two "North Face" backpacks that were far cheaper than what we could get at the Ben Thanh Market. We recommend checking it out if you are in the area.

Russia market sells fake winter clothing and fake bags. Things like fake North face jackets. It used to be good ad cheap but now it has become expensive and the quality of the merchandise has gone down. There is nothing at this market that you can not get somewhere else in Ho chi minh cheaper ad better quality. I visited there on a raiy Modayy morning and there were o customers and they still would not reduce the prices. The problem seems to be that over the last year too many tourists have gone there and massively overpaid for items so now they would rather sit there and play on their phones than make a sale.

Was looking for simple t-shirts and cargo short with elasticated waist. After visiting Ben Thanh this was a much better and pleasant experience. No hassling and AC. Clothes and shoes spread over 2 floors. Browse without trouble BUT do shop around. One stall had t-shirts I liked at 160,000vnd whilst another had the same for 100,000vnd. The shorts I wanted were 160,000vnd plus they had similar on sale at 50,000vnd. Loads of thick winter wear, bags, hats, and shoes but many are fake at the prices asked.

Worth visiting as bargains can be found. A lot better shopping experience than Ben Thanh.

This market is hugely under rated. Cant believe more people haven't been. Its small but it has some great little stalls with local prices. Almost half the price of ben thanh. Its only clothes, bags and shoes but good range and did i say cheap?
