  • The old Dam market has narrow walk. It has section of items sold here such as shoes, sandal's, pots n pants, coffee n tea, candy's, jewellery. Upstairs more on T-shirts, Blouse, Shorts, Dresses and materials. If have time check out the new market for dry fish n food items. We spend out 2 hrs discovering the place. Please try your luck on bargaining. They are little aggressive but not too much. Enjoy.
  • For foreign tourists who have not seen a typical traditional produce/fish market in Southeast Asia, the Dam Market is a great place to see, it can be shocking to some tourists. Around the market are sellers of fresh fish and produces, the area is disgustingly filthy and smelly, inside the building is not that much better with flies on the exposed ready-to-eat foods. You have been warned.
  • It's traditional market at Nha Trang city. You can buy gift for your family with cheap cost. Dam market nearly with Tran Phu Street, so that, you can find easily.
  • Very hot during the day. The place is filthy and lacks of clean toilets or if any. On the positive note, it has many vendor stalls to fullfill your shopping needs. You really need to aggressively bargain for the goods 'cause the price is ridiculus if you are a foreigner.
  • The city's main market, this busy 3-story building is densely packed with food & souvenir vendors. Vạn Thạnh, Thành phố Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa Province 650000 Opens 7AM
