Dan Sinh Market, Ho Chi Minh City

(2.9/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Flooded with Vietnam War memorabilia, Dan Sinh Market 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 Dan Sinh Market into our Ho Chi Minh City holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Sam wanted to go here and buy yourself an interesting thing with the Vietnam war. The market is a little further from the Central tourist routes-roughly 10 Minutes. quarters of 15-20 average step and you are spot on. I find the original drive is very difficult, need to rethink almost everything several times. Pass around the market try to find counterparts-and this is very difficult. On the market there are all-seater shirpotrep sewing military pants for lovers of military style. Sell here electrical goods, tools and small appliances. It took me about 30 minutes to bypass it all. But I was looking for Army folding American knife. And I found it, a fine example of the year 1965. He has remained good, and asked for it first 90 dollars. Were selling very many knives on the army bayonet rifle M8. Methods of trades, dropped the price tag up to 50 bucks. Making sure the original I left satisfied. From history-many hours, lanterns, compasses, barometers, etc in General recommend to everyone who needs war attribute memory.

  • 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.
