Update on
TF Travel Author

Ben Thanh Market, needless to say, is a well-known icon for long-time dwellers in HCM City as well as visitors to the country’s most bustling hub. Located in the city downtown amid an abundance of tourist facilities, restaurants and shopping streets, Ben Thanh Market offers visitors all they need.

At the market, ones can find almost all and everything, from everyday food to all kinds of souvenirs symbolic of all regions of the country. But there is another facet of the venue that is getting increasingly popular for the city’s citizenry as well as tourists: The night-time market.

As the city lights up the night, shopkeepers set up tents on both sides of Ben Thanh Market to prepare for the second business shift of the day. Tourists and local people can enjoy specialties of the North, South and Central regions of Vietnam as well as other tasty dishes with reasonable prices. Anyone can satisfy their tastes by various kinds of Vietnamese noodles served with pork, beef, chicken or seafood in different types of sweet, sour or peppery soup. The warming bowls of noodles are adorned with traditional herbal leaves and vegetable making the soups subtle, which surely awake your moreish senses.


Although it is just a night food court in a less-than-200-meter street, the food is quite hygienic and sophisticated in cooking. Most of the restaurants here demonstrate their menus in English and some other foreign languages with appetizing pictures which make it easier for tourists to order. It would be a wise choice to cruise the street until something catches your eyes because most of Vietnamese foods taste as good as they look.


If you have no chance for a long stay in the city, a walk along Ben Thanh night market can give you a better understanding of the lifestyle and food culture of local people. The miniature Sai Gon at Ben Thanh Market at night can fully meet visitors’ demand for traditional food and shopping.
