  • 過年時店家營業很少,大部分都是批貨才會來這,如果是要買大量的東西回國賣,這理會是不錯的選擇,買乾貨或水果也是不錯,如果沒打算大量買東買,就不建議來著浪費時間 
  • Crowed but very nice experience. People here is very rush in the morning, trying to sell and by the whole packages, there are clothes, electronics, and many other stuff, Dong Xuan market is good place...  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.
