Halong MarketTravelers to Halong Bay usually skip the city and head for sights nearby but the market is one place on many must-see lists. The market, in the center of town on Bach Dang Street, is busy with Halong residents and along the edges you can find fish shops and food stalls that offer opportunities to sample some local flavors.

Built in 2003, Halong's new Market on Bach Dang Street offers diversity in merchandise as well as a fringe of good street food around its periphery. The Market is open from early in the morning (6 a.m.) to 6:30 p.m. Local specialties like dried fish are found here as well as stalls where a hot Vietnamese coffee (made with condensed milk) make them a choice stopping place for local people-watching.
