  • This was one of our stops on a day bus tour of the sights of Nha Trang and I would advise to avoid at all costs. Place is filthy and was the only place during our Vietnam tour that I didn't feel safe....  more »
  • From the campaign went on foot. Without hesitating because it is one way of turning even the post office you can get. Bought one piece inside the second floor is a strong push, ripped impression. Not to negotiate additional purchased a piece after buying one, street vendor differ only in design was half inside! Those who are confident in negotiations except stall near the entrance of the better might be.

  • Get place to shop for anything and everything from shoes to clothes and bags to fresh food and so easy to bargin on the price. The shop people are very friendly and want to sell their goods. In the food section the smell of seafood is overpowering but awesome to see an array of authentic vietnamese food culture. Be prepared to walk out smelling like the market place and having dirty feet. Closed shoes are a must. Best time to visit is on Sunday, less crowded. Be careful walking in the alleyways as motorcyclist also use these side lanes to ride through. You could easily spend a few hours in here.
  • This is very old market for Nha Trang citizen. However, the price is needed to bargain, unless you want to buy with expensive prices. The products in this market is easily found in the city.
  • As a Vietnamese who went to many local markets from Saigon to Danang to HoiAn to Hanoi, this place is horrendous. It looks like it was nuked during Vietnam War and no one had time to fix it yet.
  • This looks a lot like a pair apocalyptic market or wasteland. It's really gnarly. Prepared to be ripped off and harassed. Skip it and go to Lotte Mart
  • A place to buy stuff. But u have to notice of the price. I don't recommend.
