    it is such a market where you get everything you wish to buy for the use of your daily life. clothes shoes, purses,belts,combs,dresses,souvenirs etc... being an Indian i enjoyed my expertise at bargaining with the locals. thump rule for shopping is whatever price they quote, try to get between 35-40%. first they will say no but as you start walking they will give it to you at your price. the market is shoppers paradise and gives you thailand market feeling. all the branded stuff you will get here as copy.

    A big area - many stalls but with similar goods - mostly clothing but some shoes and bags. Quite large food stall and product area. Look for quality cotton and silk items at some stalls. BARGAIN!

    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 love markets so we made an effort to walk and find it. The market is not big and is quite airless and hot. You feel like you are in any army disposal store most of the time, but there is a little gem of a shop(s) hidden up the back, you just need to walk through and find it. Just plan for a walk by and 30 mins inside for a quick look. It sort of rounds out the history tour of Vietnam.

    Local market for everything; clothes, clothes accessories, fresh food, dried food, fresh fruits, prepared food, fish market section, meat market inside, they even have a tofu stall. Selling vegetables, fruits fish on the outside of the main building under tents. Noisy & crowded, cheap prices, many locals shop here. Few tourist at this market.

    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.

    Most store holders ignored us, one even refused to sell us some fabric. There however were stall holders that were very helpful. There is an enormous amount of fabric here mainly synthetic and silk. Very cheap prices

    I really enjoyed my visit here, everyone that worked there was super friendly and the atmosphere was super cool. Lots of women's clothing which for me was great and then on the top floor was a henna station, tarot reading and a cafe. Really enjoyed my visit!

    A fascinating walk through Saigon's market culture and merits a visit. Not too much we wanted to buy but the experience was worth the effort.

    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.

    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.
