This is the city's biggest, most authentic market. You can find almost anything you need here, from basic supplies to souvenirs. The food is outstanding and the people-watching is great even if you don't buy anything.

Beware of the greed and over-pricing of any shop. Check, compare and be cautious before making a purchase. Be daring to bargain with dirty discounts to avoid being scammed.

the market is very welcoming (sometimes too much). the prices are fixed only at the surroundings of the market - where you cannot bargain. still - the same things are offered for different prices as you get away from the entrance, so don't be seduced...More

Worth a look and to pick up some fair quality fake brand goods if your prepared to bargain. Some vendors aggressive and a couple abusive when said no thanks which was pretty disappointing, but overall as expected from a market.

If the market was cooled with more fans perhaps our experience would’ve been better. If you walk into the clothing market multiple vendors will harass you by selling you clothes and shoes. It’s a bit overwhelming for the non seasoned tourist.

Not really, and regardless I believe you'd be better off elsewhere. Saigon has plenty of shops like this you can find. Ben Tanh market isn't a place I would recommend for this.
