  • A must visit place in Hue city if you wanna experience the local vibrant lives! Street foods sold in the market are very yummy. You must try Bun thit nuong - grill pork with rice noodles! mouth-watering!
  • Nice and easy market. The usual market items is available here. I liked the thit nuong (pork satay sticks), with clear pricing and delightful. Simple pleasures.
  • What a mess (in a good way)! Be prepared to wade yourself through stalls that basically sell anything you can imagine.
  • Gett all the sights, aromas and sounds of a traditional asian market. Lots of everything here, from colorful silk clothes through to fruit, herbs and frogs legs. Make sure to walk the very back lane closest to the river.
  • Mostly local market, dont bother with the tourist shops. Cheap bananas to be had, food in center is meh. Fun to walk around in though
