Night markets, which attract visitors with their abundance of goods and remarkably low prices, have become popular in HCM City.
Minh Phung night market in District 6, which opens from 2pm to midnight, sells all kinds of accessories for women – hairpins, jewellery, handbags, cloth, clothes, and others.
With more than 250 stalls, Ky Hoa night market on Cao Thang Street, District 10, is the city's largest night market. It has stalls selling clothes, cosmetics, jewellery, handicrafts, food, and, especially, sale-off products, attracting large numbers of students and young people.
The 100-year-old Ben Thanh market is a prime destination for tourists because it is a veritable symbol of HCM City. The unwritten principle for shopping here is to ask at half the price the seller wants.-VNS
