Binh Tay Market, Ho Chi Minh City

1.5
#22 of 118 in Shopping in Ho Chi Minh City
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. Plan to see Binh Tay Market and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ho Chi Minh City trip itinerary maker.
