Located in HCMC’s Chinatown, this is a superb place to go and take pictures. Curiosities are copious and most of the time foreigners will have no clue what they’re looking at. The food stalls are frequented mostly by Vietnamese but this shouldn’t deter you from joining in. Rubbing elbows and sharing some laughs with locals will certainly make your trip all the more memorable. Also, if you’re looking for wholesale fabrics such as silk and velvet, the prices at Cho Binh Tay aren’t marked up as much as in the Benh Thanh market, so do your shopping here.
