Best Markets in Ho Chi Minh City

Most district cities have at least one vibrant market place and Ho Ci Minh City has the Ben Thanh market, the Ky Hoa night market on Cao Thang in District 10, the Cai Be flower floating market, and the China Town area. Those markets have everything you can imagine and beyond on offer, from food, to cutlery, to flower bulbs. Even if you do not buy a singe cone hat, you will experience your fastest transformation from "gringo" to local as you will have to politely push back the raid of offers, watch out for pick-picketers, and aptly bargain prices. Markets will certainly provide you with great shots, great food and will bring you the "authentic" feeling. Be prepared for crowd, more crowd, little space to move and buzz.

Markets in Ho Chi Minh City

  • Ben Thanh Market
    By far the most famous market to be found in HCMC. The Ben Thanh market area is lively and bubbly, with every kind of imaginable good to be found. Whether you are looking for souvenirs, authentic products, fruits, vegetables, or simply an afternoon of fun and experiencing the atmosphere of this market, you will be able to find it.
  • Visit the Cai Be Floating Flower Market
    This floating market is to be found in the Mekong Delta and perfect to combine with a boat journey. Amazing flowers are being sold, but also other products such as vegetables and various kinds of food.
  • China Town Market
    This market is located in China Town, district 5. It is not one of the most special places to visit in Ho Chi Minh City, but it is still fun to go on a stroll for one or two hours.

90 Minutes Amsterdam Kickstart Tour

Ente was an amazing host. He took so much pain. We started late and he waited for us. Then he took around . Helped us grab some lunch and then since we couldn't walk much as we had a little kid he helped us get some bikes. We then did like a biking walking tour. Infact, I kept calling him back for little information that we politely and readily provided. I think we found a friend back in Amsterdam with him. Many thanks Ente.

The Best of Porto: Highlights & Hidden Gems

Because of Marisa, Oporto for us was the highlight of Portugal. From the moment we met her she was friendly, smiley and had such a good vibe. She show us Porto and explain us heaps of things; churches, monuments, etc in detail plus she suggested some places to visit next day which we did. She was a truly host until the very end, even calling us a taxi to return to our hotel. Was a total pleasure meeting her and with this 3 hours tour we had a beautiful taste of Porto, place we loved. If you want the best host; Marisa it’s the one as we highly recommended!! PS: She loves children as we did this tour with our baby boy of 6 months old.
