    A fun chaotic shopping experience. This place is buzzing. A large amount of small vendors selling bags, tshirts, wallets, fabric, dresses. You name it you can get it. The bartering experience is fun if you keep it light hearted and remind your self how much their currency actually is worth. We picked up some huge bargains and to be honest the quality is good. With a visit but the constant sales pitches catches up with you after an hour or so.

    Had a great selection of street food. The prices are slightly marked up but it makes up on the choices. The drinks especially had a wide variety of types especially beers.

    1)This is a popular site included by MOST Tour groups.
    2)The location is slight away from main city centre, situated in CHOLON, HCMC. China Town.
    3)The shops are mainly WHOLESALE Basic, offering: Clothings. Fruits. ...etc; some even refused to retail Buys !!
    4)Less crowded than BEN THANH MARKET, and lesser items on offer; NO shopping Malls within walking distance !!
    5)Visit it for exposure !!

    Just a market for tourists.
    Did not see many local transaction activities.
    You need some bargain skills to be able to buy anything here. They seemed to put the price at double lol

    Located at the back of HCMC city center, the American Market specializes in reproduction of ex-military items and fake war souvenirs. It is due mainly to this feature that its is also known as War Surplus Market.
    Among the displayed items are flack jackets, smashed aviation dials, foot powder, ex-military clothing and equipment. Authentic items are gradually disappearing and the copies are flooding the market. The vendors are very persuasive in promoting war like zippo lighters, dog tags and shell casings. Gas masks and field stretchers can also be found here. However, genuine items are being phased out with the passage of time.

    Certainly a unique place and pretty sure it's breaking a heap of health and safety regulations (rock climbing with beer and skateboarding a definite no no in Australia)
    Good beers and nice open area / beer garden. Worth a visit.

    As others have mentioned, not for the feint hearted if you don’t like offal or pieces of animals, frogs or fish you don’t know existed. The street markets outside spread for miles. If you want to get a good insight into the culture then Ba Chieu market will provide that.

    A fantastic and local market. Friendly vendors with honest prices. Lot's to see, touch and smell! Be sure to explore outside and down the surrounding alleys and streets. A great place to get a feel for a genuine market. No tourists here.

    This was better than I thought. Vendors were friendly and let you browse in peace. Clean. Not too busy and the indoor parts with fans were a welcome break from the heat. Some quality fabric. I didn't need anything but enjoyed browsing. Not sure on prices. Suggest stopping by if in the area. Don't make a special trip unless you want fabric! Located in Chinatown.

    Visited this market on my way to look at the Mosque next to it.

    There are fruit shops around the outside which are quite reasonable and well laid out. Once you get into the main part of the market the smell takes over. Not to mention the odd halfwit who tries to drive his bicycle through the market proper. There are people sitting down eating ......

    The only positive thing I have to say is that it gives you a window on local culture.

    This is great local market with none of the pressure sales tactics, just locals going about their business and lives.

    Watch out for the scooters sliding down the aisles and take time to grab a meal and just watch life pass by.
