Ben Thanh Night Market

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

In the evening from about 6p.m. the Ben Thanh Market goes outdoors. Although it’s more of the same in the way of handbags, tee shirts, souvenirs, it feels wonderful to wander along the roads and browse the displays during the evening. It’s cooler too! Its difficult not to be tempted by the delicious aroma from the barbeques fired up along the route and the pork is particularly divine. There are also many sea food restaurants. The vendors are pushy but, if you get into the spirit of it, rather entertaining all the same. I recommend at least one dinner here on your trip to HCMC. It’s on every night from around 6p.m. but better from 7p.m. Location: the streets around the Ben Thanh Market, just off Le Loi and Le Than Ton.
