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.
