Dong Ba Market is a big market selling almost everything for daily needs. There are sections for fresh produce, fish and meat, dry items, accessories and snacks. It's really nice to just walk around and to see how the local live.

The people in and around Dong Ba market will only treat like one thing, an open-wallet. The vendor will jump up to stand in your way and then emplore you to shop there. Even providing a polite "no" will not stop their aggressive tactics. It...More
