Dong Ba Market is one of the oldest markets in Hue. This place has very much importance in the everyday life of Hue. Shoppers rate it as one of the best shopping places in the city. The Dong Ba Market is located alongside the northern bank of Huong River and on the famous Tran Hung Dao Street of Hue city.

 

Anthony Bourdain, a famous TV star and renowned chef once visited the Dong Ba Market and couldn’t resist the food without tasting it much. There was another grand market named Qui Gia Thi just outside the Chanh Dong Gate during the reign of King Gia Long before the opening of Dong Ba Market.

 

The capital city was invaded in the summer of 1885 and the grand market was burned to ashes by the aggressors. However, after 1887, the King Dong Khanh rebuilt the market and named it Dong Ba Market. Since that time, the Dong Ba Market is providing food, hospitals, dormitories, and other facilities to the commuters. It was in 1899 during the reconstruction project of King Thanh Thai that the market was relocated to its current position.

 

Despite the fact that the market went through many changes since the start of the 20th century, many old features are still visible in the market. Tourists usually love to go to the Old bell tower during their visit to the market and stand proudly in the center of the complex’s building. The overall area of the Dong Ba Market is approximately 16,000 m2. It is important to mention that it is mainly not the architect of the market due to which it is famous, but the serenity and the environment created by the shoppers which attract the majority of people.

 

All types of special cultural gifts can be found in the market. Moreover, traditional food which includes rice, beef, leaves cakes and the mutton is famous in the market. Dong Ba Market is playing an important part in the economy of Vietnam and has made hue a trade city. Apart from purchasing things, tourists learn about the old trading methods also as they step-in to explore the beauty of the market. Before buying anything from the market, one must bargain first. Only a few sellers are good at speaking English but still, you can manage to explore it easily.

 

Market timing starts in the early morning and remained open till 08:00 PM. Estimates show that almost 5000-7000 commuters pay a visit to the Dong Ba Market on a daily basis.
