  • Definitely a tourist place worth visiting especially for those who never been there. But unfortunately price is increasing over year drastically and it is less attractive now to go. Anyhow if you do visit, do walk further in to the more quiet lanes. These stores are at less obvious/popular corner, but they have much lower starting price and more willing to negotiate. From my personal experience, I dont find any difference in quality.

  • It’s a market which sell from wet market to clothes. Prices in front stalls are fixed. Most of them can speak English. Stalls sell similar items so choose. Go there in the morning when it’s cooler. Prices are reasonable compared to District 1. Bought some bags. They also sell flavours cashew nuts such as wasabi etc and variety of coffee as Vietnam is a major producer of those items.

  • Crazy huge market, the food vendors serve up delicious food - very inexpensive. It's a tourist trap, tons of things you don't need. If your looking for knock off goods this is the place. I recommend when bartering negotiate 1/3 of what they're asking for a a start. If you don't get close to the 1/3 of the price walk away... I like it, fun to see and people watch :)

  • Very much a tourist rip off. But worth to go and see. If you smile and ask for better price you get some better offers. At night market around with some food places with very tasty Vietnamese dishes.

  • Cool market. Vendors can get a bit grab-y and very aggressive. If you want something don’t get fooled. Whatever price you’re thinking they can always go lower. But it’s important to be respectful and nice. They won’t budge on prices if you’re not a nice person.
