Ben Thanh market is one of the iconic destionation in HCMC. This market was built by French and is seemed as one of the French architectural remains in HCMC.
If you want to visit here, there are 2 times in days for you to choose:
- Daytime with traditional market stalls inside Ben Thanh market. You can buy Vietnamese local foods, tropical fruits, Vietnamese cloth to make ao dai etc.
- Nighttime with Ben Thanh night market, one of the famous place must-visit for every tourists. At Ben Thanh night market, you can explore the night bargain life with a variety range of goods and souvernirs. However, here is a note for tourist, if you want to buy cheap things at Ben Thanh, be assisted by a Vietnamese, because the seller can be more easy with Vietnamese on bargain than with foreigners.
Transportation: because it is the famous sight-seeing in HCMC, so you can come there with every means of transportation. My suggestion is that if your hotel is around district 1, you should walk there. Not only to cut cost but also to explore many things on Vietnamese streets.
