Binh Tay Market, Ho Chi Minh City

1.5
The central market in the district and a thriving hub for trade in Ho Chi Minh, Binh Tay Market pulsates with authentic everyday market life. Sprawling across street after street, hosting some 600 stalls in both the outdoor and indoor areas, the market jumps to life at the break of dawn, winding down around mid-morning. Awaken your senses with a walk around the maze of fresh produce, hot food, and handicrafts, immersing yourself in the market’s culture of bargain-hunting and haggling. Primarily a wholesale market, prices get cheaper the more you buy.

  • Market currently closed for renovations. I went there due to a friend's recommendations. But its closed since early this year according to locals i asked nearby the location.  more »
  • This market is a big maze multi-story Chinese-style. Is pure chaos, where it is sold pretty much everything. Thousands of colours, scents of spices and strong odors, bits and bobs of various gene (and hot), live and dead animals and fruits and vegetables of all kinds. Are eaten almost everywhere, in their stalls, dishes and is very particular. There are so many people and tourists, but it is a place to hear a truly unique atmosphere.
