Ben Thanh Market Review

This bustling market is worth a visit for the people-watching opportunities alone, but there is also plenty of shopping and eating to partake of. The market, which traces its history back to the 17th century, is a good place to score deals on textiles, clothing, and artisanal crafts—if you're willing to haggle for your price. Food vendors at Ben Thanh offer authentic local snacks, should all that shopping and haggling work up your appetite.
