What To Expect

Markets are the lifeblood of Vietnam. There are thousands of them. Every little village has one, as do the biggest cities. You can buy anything as meat, fresh seafood, vegetables, fruits or all types, eggs, and much more. There are food stalls where you can sit on a small plastic stool and taste. The markets are always bustling, crowded, and exciting. These markets seem to exist in another dimension to the rest of the city. These should places if you really want to discover culture and life here.

ITINERARY

Markets are the lifeblood of Vietnam. There are thousands of them. Every little village has one, as do the biggest cities. We will start our tour after picking you up at your hotel lobby. Then, transfer to Ho Thi Ky market by cyclo which is not only close-knit to Vietnamese but also strongly connected with foreigners as all of them are attracted by this unique means at first sight visiting Vietnam.

Ho Thi Ky is considered the biggest flower market in town and is known as the Langbiang Plateau (famously located in Dalat) of HCM City. Ho Thi Ky is a wholesale market supplying flowers for both wholesale sellers in other markets or individuals wanting to buy flowers. Indulge yourself in this maze of flowers while visiting Saigon.

After that we will visit  Pet market.The markets are always bustling, crowded, and exciting. Continue to Ba Hat Market, a small local market where Saigoneses people can buy fresh food, fruits.

Moving on cycle to Nhat Tao market, a busy market. Electronics suppliers in Nhat Tao are set up for the local market.A good strategy is to go in the late morning or early afternoon on a weekday or Saturday. It’s slightly less busy at those times, and I avoid Sundays because some stores will be closed or have reduced hours. Then we are going to Tan Thanh market where you can find all kinds of motorbike parts here .

Soai Kinh Lam Market is the next stop in our itinerary. Soai Kinh Lam Market has long been famous for its offer a large variety of textiles and fabrics, so many tailors and designers within the city often visit this market to purchase their customer's  favorite types of fabric. Take a short cyclo trip to Binh Tay Market constructed by the French in the 1880s, is located in the centre of Vietnam’s largest Chinatown district.this market mainly serves the local population with its extensive range of fresh fruits, vegetables, poultry, meat and seafood from regions across Vietnam.This market only sells goods wholesale.

The others stop is Kim Bien Market. There are many electrical appliances and electronics, cosmetics and clothing stalls here. Furthermore, the vendors are very friendly and the price range is reasonable as well.

The last point in our tour is Thien Hau Pagoda, a Buddhist temple dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess, Mazu.When visiting make sure you take your time to look at all the small corners this temple has, as there are many sculptures, statues and artworks to discover.
