Hoi An Night Market, Hoi An

4.1
#9 of 288 in Shopping in Hoi An
On the busy banks of the Thu Bon River lies Hoi An Night Market, a bevy of stalls packed with fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, traditional fragrant herbs and spices, and Vietnamese silk of various colors. Examine the authentic Vietnamese port life, where traders gather amid bustling alleys to sell their exotic goods. Besides food vendors, renowned tailors work part of the marketplace, creating clothing made of all sorts of materials at rock-bottom prices. A lot of salespeople tend to get pushy, in which case simply smile and continue your stroll through the market. Ready your bargaining skills to bring down the deliberately exaggerated prices. To plan Hoi An vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • This is the usual night market you will find around SE Asia. It is very “user” friendly without to much hassle. Everyone is very friendly and there are some good buys if you you keep your wits about y...  more »
  • The many shops in the old town of Hoi an's offer better goods. This only cheaper and worse, mostly "made in China" are on the Nightmarket.

  • Beautiful colors and lights. Lots of restaurants to pick from. We stayed late one evening for a glass of wine. The town closes down by 11 pm. It was still easy to get a taxi.  more »

  • Not bad, always seems to be packed with people. All the vendors try to sell their goods to you. Can get irritating if you just want to have a look. They do have some cool souvenirs though. There are also some food stalls that sell snacks thats are really good. (They don't want you taking photos)
  • The plane should drop you here first so you could get a first taste of Vietnam without all the trash on the streets and the crazy trafic. Definitely worth the trip to here. You will also have the chance to get some good pics.
  • Was super busy the night we were there, but lots for stalls selling basically all the same stuff. Lots of food choices which is great. The ice creams are awesome for $1.50
  • Store 33. The guys enthusiasm was good fun and we bought several things from his store. Qould recommend trying atleast once while in Hoi an
  • Gorgeous. Go before sunset and watch the market transition from a day market to a night market. With a golden red sky, all the lanterns turn on and the river is filled with good-wish candles. Very touristy and therefore many salespeople.

Where to stay in Hoi An

While Hoi An offers a good selection of sleeping options in all price categories, only a few of them lie in the old town, probably the city's most popular tourist area. To stay near this historic neighborhood, look for hotels in the surrounding streets, especially Ba Trieu and Hai Ba Trung. If you can, look for rooms in the evening, when many budget hotels try to fill up by offering deep discounts. For the best choices and bargains, reserve as early as possible.
