Ben Thanh Market is located just opposite of the round-about of the bus interchange. This market sells almost anything and everything and the best part of it is it is really cheap to get those items. Items such as shirts, shoes, pants, jeans, Bermudas, bags, sun-glasses, and even sports items are sold here. The initial price that the seller would give would seem expensive. But one can ask them for a really good discount if you are persistent enough to ask them to lower the price.


This market also sells branded sportswear and designer products at a very cheap price. Apart from just items. The markets also have food and drink stalls that sell local delicacies at a really cheap price. The food and drinks price are fixed and thus you need not bargain on them.

Address:
Le Loi and Tran Hung Dao, District 1

Price:
Many items are sold here and thus the price varies. For example a shirt can cost just 30,000 Dongs if you can get a good bargain

Opening Hours:
Daily 7am-7pm

How to get there:
Taking a taxi would be the best as it would alight you at the market itself
