    My wife and I really liked this market. And it's not about shopping. Namely in the Asian style. If you want to learn about life in Viet Nam not tourist booklets and so hackneyed tourist places, is required to visit. Haggle is welcomed)

    You should look out for cheats! Come to, for example, by asking what you are looking for and then stalls, which will take you on a really high prices. For example, an attempt was made to get us to buy coffee more than a MILLION, and the situation does not get out of, so we paid the price of coffee in the 250 k even though tea right is for a maximum of 50-80 k! In addition, tourists are asked to triplasummat the products or do not pay for the bags and others over 200 k.

    If you been to one, you know what to expect from them all. People following you down the hallway nagging you to buy their overpriced stuff. Then the price is suddenly 1/4 of what they originally offer...  more »

    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
