Owner description: An indoor wholesale market known for its bargains.
Reviewed July 8, 2017

The market is interesting, many nuts, dried fruits or other traditional (Chinese?) food are found. It is good to visit to know how the local people to trade.

However, the place is not very clean, especially it is a rainy day. More troublesome is that, English is not really useful in this place, you have to communicate by body language, as a traveler.

This is predominantly a supply kind of market for locals where items are sold in bulk. It's cramped and dirty, you should go elsewhere if you're looking for clothes or other market items as a visitor to Vietnam.

We were expecting this market to be in its original building but it is currently squeezed into tin sheds across the road and in the perimeter. Incredibly narrow, hot & stuffy and more suited to bulk buys. It too some effort to find it too.

Visited in May 2017. The main market is closed for renovation. However, most of the shops moved to temporary space (containers) and the whole place was hot and stuffy. Be prepared to hear about the pricing and as you walked further in, the price gets slightly cheaper. Comparing to Ben Thanh market, at least the sellers are not pushy. Limited walking space though inside the tiny containers with many shops in there.

Not recommended for families with children.

At this market you can get many things at reasonable proces. but you have to be sure of bargaining or they quote a high prize and you end up buying it.
