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.

Half-day Exploring HCMC in a Unique Way

Meeting Tong and getting to know Saigon with him was such a pleasure. It's really clear that he cares deeply about his city and wants you to have the best experience.

He adds so many thoughtful little touches and explains everything in lots of detail which really gives you insight into the place and the culture.

Tong is also happy to help if you have any questions either about things that you see on his tour and/or advice about the rest of your trip.

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Claudio met us as scheduled and took us for an exciting tour of Rome. His english was perfect. Claudio is a great Story Teller and gave us stories about the present and the past. We will always remember the story about the wedding cake Palace, the pizza and coffee shop and also the Communist wine bar. We highly recommend Claudio and would do another tour with him again.
