Visit Ben Thanh Market

Ben Thanh market is the iconic central market in Ho Chi Minh city with a variety of items sold from souvenirs, kitchen supplies to groceries and meat. One disadvantage is the market gets hot and muggy during the day and the sellers might be pretty aggressive to both locals and tourists. However, you should really pay a visit to this place. You could find something hard to catch anywhere else. Remember to spend some time navigating through and really exploring all that is has to offer, and don’t forget to make bargain and negotiate because the prices here are often marked up. If the seller persists “fixed price”, you will most likely to find the same items at another stall.
