Though not quite the same since a devastating fire in 1994, this famous market is nevertheless a landmark trading post.

We came to the Don Xuan Market in order to buy some nice souvenirs. But in my opinion, there is nothing nice about this sticky market hall at all. The only things you can buy here are loads of ugly t-shirts, fake sneakers and poorly...More

The Dong Xuan Market is pretty much your open air market with extreme variety. I found everything that I was looking for within a matter of an hour or so. If you don't like walking or tight spaces not the place for you. I highly...More

Lots of local products to see but sometimes they require you to purchase in bulk. Items there are not necessarily cheaper than those in the tourist shops at the lake. Pretty hot, not air-conditioned. There are better places to spend your morning. Beware of the...More

We paid a visit to Dong Xuan Market but it was hot and dirty and the aisles were incredibly narrow - stalls weren't interested in making sales as it seems they are more geared towards wholesalers. Had a wander around but it's definitely skippable.

Typical mixed market that looks the same as every other market like it across South East Asia, selling cheap goods aimed at locals. If you are from outside Asia, it's worth a look to experience the hustle and bustle of a busy market.

This is more a wholesale / bulk quantity place. It has a very different feel to the ban tan markets of Saigon and retailers are very willing to let you pass on by. Discounting is not as aggressive, although starting prices are much more reasonable....More
