Ben Thanh Market



Situated conveniently in downtown Ho Chi Minh City, the iconic Ben Thanh Market is a great place to buy local handicrafts, Vietnamese art and souvenirs. You can also get a taste of street food 'stall-style' Vietnamese cuisine or simply cool off with a refreshing fruit drink when you need a rest from the bargaining madness.

The market has seemingly never-ending stalls, creating a maze of an adventure! Also make sure to see the night market here. Restaurants and stalls open up around the perimeter of the building, creating a vibrant scene filling the air with the scents of BBQ and authentic Vietnamese foods. Chefs will cook up your meal right in front of you, from an array of choices including vegetarian noodles, fresh seafood, steamed cakes and crispy rice pancakes. Maybe the most fun aspect of hanging out for a meal at the night market is the local company you'll be surrounded by- as most of the food joints thrive with locals grabbing a snack or drink on their way home from work.
