A visit to Ho Chi Minh City is incomplete without a few hours spent shopping at Ben Thanh Market. One can find everything from cheap clothes, textiles, souvenirs, electronics, accessories to the the best of Vietnamese street food. During daytime the market sells fresh produce and groceries but the evenings are filled with enticing scents of wok-fried noodles and barbecued meat.
Ben Thanh Market is impossible to miss when one visits Vietnam. It serves as a shopper's paradise with just about everything obtained there. This happens to be the main marketplace of Ho Chi Minh City and is listed in almost all guide books about the city. While there are a number of upscale shopping malls located within its premises, one would also be able to buy fresh produce as well as vegetables in another section of the market that is thronged by the local populace. The market is the first place to look for apparel, utensils, decorative items, home appliances and almost every big and small item imaginable. It serves as happy hunting grounds for tourists hoping to buy trinkets and souvenirs by bargaining vociferously with the shopkeepers.
