I don't know why more people don't rave about this place! Sure, it's crowded, but that adds to the experience, right? There is so much to see and do here, it is a must for any shopaholic wanting to hit off everything on their list in one go! You have lots of souvenir stalls, coffee stalls, fresh fruit, spices, fabrics,... More

The actual building is closed for renovations hence they have setup outside the building in a temporary structure. It's quite busy and there are lots of things to see. Getting around is pretty difficult as the stores have been packed in the temporary structure. It's a cool place to visit and look around.

Enjoyable visit, bought a few pieces but with much haggling to cut the prices to something realistic. Having small denomination USD notes is a must. Glad to have had the experience and should be visited.

Lots of interesting goods for sale. Particularly liked all the mushrooms and seafood items. Fun just walking through. Most of the vendors are wholesalers so individual purchasers are discouraged.

The Binh Tay Market building is closed for renovations and the market has moved to the opposite space - so it is extremely crowded and difficult to move around. However, the price of the goods here are really unbeatable as the vendors are normally wholesale suppliers. For that, most prices are fixed. We got a steal price on ground coffee... More

Its in the area some call the Chinatown district of Cholon about 5-6klms south west of the centre of HCMC. A 15-20min taxi ride. Significantly fewer tourists out here, but if you are after a bit more of an authentic market as opposed to the somewhat tourist oriented Beh Thanh Market in the city then go here. But don't be...

Was recommended by a friend to visit and boy, am I glad I went! It reminded me of BKK's chatuchak market but was 10 times more claustrophobic. However, the food and dried items sold here are fresh and cheap! I must return again coz I haven't even explored 20% of it and I only bought so little!!

It is sad that the main market is closed when we were there, The structure is still there but fenced up. The stalls have moved to temporary buildings which is super cramp and hot so squeeze through one lanes and that should give you an experience. The dried food stuffs outside the market is more spacious and offer some very... More

Located 15 minutes away from district one in Ho Chi Minh City these busy markets were hot, cramped and crazy but a different way to do your shopping. Our tour guide on the Hop on Hop of bus said only barter down 10 % as these guys aim at the wholesale market. Prices were already much cheaper than the touristy... More
