If you were into materials then this is the place, more for the locals buying material to make outfits. Very small isles and not really all that big, watch out for the scooters riding down the wider isles.

Thought Ben Thanh market is crowded but here it's even worse. The alleys walking between shops are so small with so much stuff to sell piling high... I felt suffocated after 5 minutes inside. Never came back and done all my shopping at Ben Thanh.

This is a little out of the city but worth the 2km walk or taxi fare. Across the road from the market is the legend coffee shop which has great wifi and excellent melbourne (or Seattle) quality coffee. The market is fun, can be crowded...More

Tan Dinh Market caters to the locals. Therefore, it is less touristy. In fact, the items sold here is cheaper than Ben Thanh Market. Less 'aggressive' in pushing the sales to the visitors. It is a good bargain to get souvenirs here. There is a...More
