Ho Chi Minh City offers you the Ben Thanh Market to visit. Locals can be seen in the majority in the market for the purchase and sale of local products. They promote their local industry by cooperating with foreign tourists. Everybody out there looking for a decent and reasonable shopping place should visit the market. Remember as you are in the market so buy things as per local traditions. For instance, bartering is carried out by everyone who is in the market, so you need also to do this if even you have never done this before.

 

Ben Thanh Market is there for almost the last century and has seen many ups and downs in the history of Vietnam. The market survived even during the Vietnam war. Thousands of visitors came daily to the market and the common public earns a lot of money from this market. The town known as Saigon was tamed with fishers before the arrival of French colonialists. Later on, the market occupied the Saigon river area. Canals surrounding it were used by the traders for daily commute and shipping of their items. Incidentally, the market was burnt in 1870, nonetheless, the local authorities built it in a shape that is available to us nowadays. As the building was designed and constructed during the French era, therefore, it has clear imprints of those times. The clock tower is also featured at the southern gate of Le Lai Street. As of now, the market has the title of most famous in the country and contributing greatly to the economy of Vietnam. As you will reach right in the middle of Ho Chi Minh District, you will enter the market at the intersection of Le Loi and Ham Nghi. Still, if you are unsure as to where should you head before arriving in the market, then just follow the visitors going to the market. One can visit it during day and night time.

 

Ben Thanh Market runs for almost 16 hours a day for the convenience of the visitors. As the day closes, the shopping centers are closed, however, the cafés and restaurants come to life. In case your hotel is a little away from the Ben Thanh Market, then just hire an uber car and reach the market for fun and for delicious food.
