Russian Market, Ho Chi Minh City Reviews - Write a Review

  • Must be a seasonal market, went there yesterday and it's full of winter clothes. But its very nice market to walk around because the merchants are not very pushy. Easy to walk through the aisles and browse for goods. We enjoyed it :)

  • 90% winter cloths, 10% misc cloths as per Ben thanh market. Very cramp and a fire hazard. Multiple shops cramped in two storey limited area. No place to eat, only cafe on 2nd floor is bad, don't expect anything.

  • It's near a bank, ATM, grocery market down stairs, pho restaurant, and other breakfast vendors. Cabs usually available, and a retail shopping center called the Russian market. It's a really convenient location if your visiting

  • Very strange market for Ho Chi Minh. Mostly winter gear. Nice to walk around and many of the sales staff are willing to talk even if they won't bargain too much.

  • Not really great for bargains or different size selections. Amazing collection at the same time.
