  • Very hectic there is lots of different shops , it seems to be wholesale where all the locals get the stuff for there own markets that's why it seems so so busy almost arm to arm, we just did it all so...  more »
  • To be honest - wish we had done all our shopping at Hoi Ann. This market had very little going for it - and I would say most vendors in The City are not prepared to barter- and prices double what they...  more »
  • Crowded and not much things to buy. The only thing I felt nice when walking around this market is taking photos. I like shooting the photos about daily life of the locals. If you are finding somewhere...  more »

  • The Dong Xuan Night Market is AMAZING! It is so busy and there is so much to buy. Bartering is a must. If you have learned any Vietnamese it is a great place to practice!
  • Huge market with quite low quality tissues, many times the same little shop. It may be a good place for locals, for tourist there is no specific interest. One street beside, there is a food market in such narrow corridors, full of spices, dried mushrooms and fish... According to me, this one is much more interesting...
  • dry lychee for 13 usd/1 kg. that is a good price
  • Around 1930 everything is setup. Don't expect to get anything cheep, the quantity are not always the best. It is possible too buy food. The street are closed by the police, but some scooters getting thru anyway. It getting crowded around 21. A nice place too see, but maybe not buy if you really don't need it.
  • Hot but full of clothes and trinkets, it's worth a visit. Lots and lots of clothes, fabric if you're getting tailoring done, but one end of the first floor had souvenirs and gifts.
