  • Came here after a rain. In such weather, open street series represent a sad sight: going mesish' dirt. Still constantly ride tales, a lot of garbage. In order to feel the present local colour. In the building of the market very much grocery departments, among which comes across tableware, suitcases, clip, mechanicians, so every little thing. In the market you can find Gillette blades (take the truth not dare), purses, bags of type of crocodile. Clothing, t-shirts, bathrobes, baseball caps, all consumption and brighter. Hopefully someone will find this information interesting prices in thousands of VND already given active trades: tea 200 gr pressed packs-25/piece makadamskij, or Australian nut 125 Tutu, candied blueberries, strawberries, 500 gr-30 a pack of jelly cubes, 500 g-40 Pack of candy, chocolate, 1 kg-350 (but also cheaper I think) bamboo bath towels big-100 medium-sized sugar bowl made of bamboo-50 (instead of 130 first!) magnets-5/piece keychains on the keys from a tree-17 bracelets made of wood and seashells-15 First sellers will do big eyes, throw up their hands. Be confident in yourself, chat with a smile, the Vietnamese do not like dismal)) If refuse discounts, turn and go, 99% of you are called back and offered to bargain. Before you go to Cho dam, see prices in other places. Sellers immediately understand whether you are targeting.

  • Most importantly: bargain ever! The Vietnamese really cut prices if they bargain. Came hoping to buy silk, edged second floor twice before found that would like to buy. Colouring. But if you watch carefully, you can find very beautiful colours: Vietnamese have their actual representation about beauty and often flaunt carpet patterns. a really nice cloths clean somewhere on galerku. Bought 3.5 chic silk stunning blue-green and Fuchsia for 630 thousand. Dong (storgovalas' with 770). A lot of dried fish and seafood variety, souvenirs, tea, etc. I bought souvenirs there. Nothing is bought at cost, all sellers are willing to (or almost) traded at a lower price. From pluses-great location. Of the minuses-hot day, very strong smell, blending into the stink from dried delicacies. Was in October 2015.

  • Six of us toured here and had fun in this large and interesting place. We bought items here, had fun seeing unique items, foods and people. Nothing really unique here, typical market in many ways. Thi...  more »

  • Chợ Đầm is among the most famous must-visit sites in Nha Trang. However, not so good management has prevented it from being a memorable trip to, in terms of pricing, hygiene and even safety.
  • Its good for looking. Its an experience just to look. The prices seemed a bit extortionate. No buying just looking. Which was enough for me. Really enjoyed the visuals of the market.
  • A must visit for a tourists. I prefer the Vinh Hai market closer to my place.
  • Wanna buy something for souvenirs? Just bargain. Some seller would sell you whith the price of 60000 VND while they're just 30000 VND or lower, especially if you're Caucasian. If they don't agree, just leave, they'll call you back and sell you WITH A REALLY CHEAP PRICE lmao
  • I don't see much to buy. People there seem not welcome foreign guys. But definitely best market for locals. Ps: locals there always asking you to buy things.
