Chợ Dân Sinh, Ho Chi Minh City

(3.1/5 based on 50 reviews on the web)
Flooded with Vietnam War memorabilia, Chợ Dân Sinh is a place many military buffs will find highly interesting. You can come across everything here, from combat boots, flak jackets, gas masks, camouflage clothing and identification tags to flashlights, binoculars, field stretchers and tents. Although most of the vendors will try to persuade you the things are authentic, don’t be surprised if some of them offer to make the war relic you desire. It’s because almost everything here is fake, so do make sure you haggle for a decent price. If not so much into collecting war memorabilia, you can find here some fine camping gear. Put Chợ Dân Sinh into our Ho Chi Minh City holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Military goods is most recent ones or replica. Part of the Viet Nam war but are expensive, and not a connoisseur of fine cannot be found. 掘ri起koseba store laden with military supplies in the mountains if you go in the back, so what little I had. Asian atmosphere can be enjoyed.

  • It is Ok for cheaper tools but be aware that they are not high quality tools either but ok if you want a tool for occasional use. As a tradesperson with 30 years experience I know quality tools when I...  more »
  • First of all, the market is remembered and lots of antiques, camouflaged clothing and gear to suit every taste. From antiques, mostly submitted by: legacy of the colonial past and heritage 2 's Indochinese wars (invading Americans attribute to 2-nd world war). Also, the mass of interesting for numismatists/bonysts and tons of old bronze. Price, sometimes, you can knock off several times or even more. Of course, not without novodelov, but care to help you))) and such prices buy new not so scary)))

  • Impressiv offers for technical needs. Truly vietnamese, do not expect english skills.
  • Giá hơi cao
  • Cái gì cũng có
  • Has everything with reasonable price. Same type of chain, other places sold for 80k VND per meter and I bought one here with only 20k VND per meter. But the market doesn't open at night so try to visit here in the daytime.
  • A great market but you need the time. A bit hard to find but worth it. Go to the corner of Yersin and Nguyen Cong Tru St's, look for the corner shop selling canvas awning, etc and walk thru that shop and you are there. A great supply of x military clothing and equipment. All sort of bits and pieces. Well worth a visit.
