Ben Thanh Market
While Ho Chi Minh City might not be as renowned a shopping destination that other equally buzzing Southeast Asian city (Bangkok), it still has plenty to offer. A couple of large markets promise a visual feast, with plenty of Instagram-worthy photo opportunities, as well as oodles of items to purchase and take home. Vendors at Ben Thanh hawk everything from backpacks and handbags to jewelry and clothes. You'll also find nuts and dried foods as well as a section filled with stalls selling cooked food. The market closes at 6 p.m., but a night market opens outside daily from 7 p.m. until late in the evening, or even early in the morning (each stall owner decides when to close up). Given the market’s location in District One, it’s popular with tourists—and prices are set accordingly, so be prepared to haggle.
