Dalat Market, Da Lat

(280+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market Shopping
Dalat Market serves as the perfect place to shop for local products typical of the highlands, such as dried fruit, silk embroideries, and high quality woolen clothes. During the day, the outdoor stalls are packed with mostly fruit and flowers. However, when evening falls, stalls with food, second-hand clothing, and handicrafts occupy the streets around the market, which close for traffic. Taste some of the local specialties, and pick up some delicious preserved foods and teas to take home. The new brick market replaced an old wooden one from the 1930s, which was destroyed by fire. Plan to see Dalat Market and other attractions that appeal to you using our Da Lat vacation trip planner.

  • I found myself a new shirt and trouser in my favorite color. The evening was very nice and the people was kind and not dawdling. Visiting Dalat was totally a good experience.
  • The night market is busy every day of the week, packed mostly with locals on a night out or shopping. It is also situated right beside the lake which looks incredible at night.
  • The atmosphere of the night market was awesome. Although mostly you can find cheap products, you may also find some good quality stuff. There is also a great variety of street food.
  • plentiful of products to choose, ranging from clothes to foods as well as local specialties as regards fruits, vegetables, jam, dried fruits. highly recommended.
  • We didn't actually go into the center of the market because we had an awful experience on the way in. We ended up going back to our hotel before we could experience more. When you are coming down the steps from the bus hub to this market, ignore the guy from the chicken food stall who will aggressively invite you to sit down and eat at one of his tables. My wife and I were hungry and tired from a bus trip, and the pho looked good, so we sat down. The guy asked if we wanted chicken and we said yes thinking he meant pho with chicken in it. He brought the chicken pho out, but he also brought out a plate of chopped boiled chicken with bones and a plate of chicken liver with quail eggs. Our mistake was not sending back the meat plates, and assuming they were the same price as similar entrees in every other part of Asia we have been to. The pho was good but the meat was pre-cooked and only good with the condiments on the table. Our meal was worth 250,000 at the most, but the guy had the nerve to charge 410,000 dong! He refused to bargain with me when I suggested that 300,000 was fair. So we walked to our hotel after spending two days of our food budget for one meal. I asked my wife what attractions we should skip to get that money back, and she suggested we eat bread from the Big C for two days. After we got to our room, I looked at other restaurants and food stalls on Google Maps and found out that most food vendors in Da Lat don't charge much more than the honest Vietnamese we did business with in Ha Tien and Nha Trang. I really hope the community of honest businesses at the night market and the surrounding neighborhood can come together to get this dishonest chicken vendor off the streets. By tricking foreigners and overcharging them, he is taking money that could be spent at honest local businesses and in the small farming villages outside of Da Lat that need the tourism dollars. If you are a foreign tourist going to the night market, do your part and drive this scam artist out of business by ignoring his pitches. He is halfway down the steps to the market and you will know it is him when you see the cart filled with whole plucked chickens, vegetables, and eggs. Just walk on by and save your money for people who deserve it.
