Binh Tay Market, Ho Chi Minh City

2.8
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.

  • The corridors there are super tight (approx. 1m wide) and full! Remaining within the rest of the gang, go then also still completely ruthless people on mopeds and transport people and goods. The offered goods rather reminiscent cheapest plastic junk from China! Would I recommend anyone!

  • The place was a let down. More on wholesale item.the original market is under renovation therefore they shifted the market opposite which is super cramp and just a lane for walking. Go only if you are...  more »
  • The streets of the city are small and narrow, and the bikes and the tourists have to be careful and safe. Items Datong Small differences, refined degree is not high. It's time to hang out and not spend too much time here.

  • The market is under renovation, all the stores are temporary located opposite of the market. Very narrow space and hot! If you are expecting to have a good shopping experience, you can skip this place for now. May be until it is renovated.
  • Very crowded market, so narrow you don’t rest want to walk in there, do hang around this area, lots of stuff to see. Very lively place in saigon. Not to be missed
  • A must visit..if not to buy just to look and be amazed..its vast, congested, warm and smelly.. it was great as it threw you straight into the heartbeat of local wholesale commerce. Not advised for children as it is very congested with walkways sometimes only 16 to 18 inches wide. But this place will give you an idea what the shops pay for their goods.. so when bartering you have that in mind. Go explore..its great.
  • As the main market is under renovation, all stores have been moved temporarily to the green huts opposite and the place is really narrow and hot. This place is mostly selling bulk items so expect to hear "no sale" from them.
  • It's very congested and close to each shop with narrow walkway. Everyone seems to be selling similar items. The trick here is to out your bargaining skills to work. Throw them a price you willing to pay and if they accept, they will call you and counter offer. By then, you know they are at your mercy.
