around 11.30 the shop close.

Along backpackers's area, some close at 8.30, some close at 10.00, depends on what you want to buy.

Ben T. is a day market - at night food vendors set up shop just outside. I know of no night mkt in the area (are you thinking of Hanoi ?)

There is a collection of stalls, both food and clothing, that set up outside and off down the side street when the main Ben Thanh market closes. Quite popular with some but I've never found anything that I couldn't have got anywhere else. There are barriers at each end, not that it stops the motorbikes hurtling through. Sets up around 6pm (as it gets dark)..

Some of the stalls sell really good food, though. In my opinion. I often have grilled fish in one of the makeshift restaurants on the (north?) side, the side that is furthest away from the backpacker area.

I agree that in terms of shopping there is not much there that catches my interest. I guess that 20 trips to Vietnam kind of took care of my shopping needs :-)

Depending on the weather and the amount of traffic, I have found the BTM night stalls open till almost 1:00 sometimes. Remember this is Viet Nam and they are on ISH time. 6 ish, 8 ish.......
