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.
Only went for one visit, found it cool but nothing special. We ate a banh mi sandwich at one of the stands and checked out all the tents. Good way to get out and see the night life. Would recommend going after 7pm, people were...More
You can find pretty much anything. Garments, coffee, spices, fruit, meat, fish, etc. Very lively. There are food stalls for a quick lunch. Also there is a public toilet incase of an emergency.
The garments are all low quality fakes so bargain hard.
Went to the market to get a few things. It was busy and crowded. Found a small duffle and after bargaining got a good price. Bought some cherries that were delicious. They are much more expensive in Vietnam than the USA where they are imported...More
This had become a tourist trap long before we arrived. Disappointing food! Wasn't interesting on the menu, wasn't interesting on the plate. No good place to sit, just out in the aisles. Buses of tour groups coming in routinely. On the upside, food was clean
If you intend to buy something you should be informed in advance about the prices.
You can bargain, and you should.
In my case they they offer a superdry backpack for 850d. The same model i bought in Hoi An for 320d.

We walked to the market from our hotel which took about 20mins. It is fairly easy to find. There are many entrances to the market and shops seemed to be grouped in the type of products they are selling. Lots of clothing, fresh vegetables, meat,...More
Great market that you can find anything you want from Vietnam there. Every souvenir you could want, you'll find here. Biggest thing is be prepared to negotiate and haggle prices. But on the outskirts the price is fixed.
Biggest tip go in knowing the conversion...More
It’s hot, chaotic and crowded.
In this market you can find everything. The vendors are somewhat aggressive in their pursuit for customers, but not holding you back.
You can do some great bargains here, but then you must go into some negotiations.

You can find North Face jackets - copies of course - at the Ben Thanh market or if you would prefer Saigon Square Shopping Mall is similar to the market and is air conditioned. The quality is the same at both and there are... More
You can find North Face jackets - copies of course - at the Ben Thanh market or if you would prefer Saigon Square Shopping Mall is similar to the market and is air conditioned. The quality is the same at both and there are probably more stalls with jackets at the Mall which is not far away from the Market. Hope that helps, have fun bargaining!
