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.

Athens Gods, Myths and Legends Tour

We only had 4 hours in Athens before travelling to the islands. Vicky filled the morning with great details, culture, history and current events. She helped us use the time efficiently and we learned and saw way more than we could have on our own. She’s enthusiastic and knowledgable. Her English is perfect and I really appreciated that she used her tablet to add more information and images to the tour. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Athens.

Magical Ayutthaya Day Trip with a Local

We did a day trip with Sammy in Ayutthaya. He was an amazing host, very knowledgeable and friendly. He told us the history of Ayutthaya and showed us some amazing local foods we would have never known to eat. Our trip with him was the highlight of our time in Thailand!!
