You can get almost everything here. From food to artwork. Coffee tea instant noodles..almost anything. I would suggest to look into the stalls if you are considering to eat here. The cleanliness is not great & some of the food is not authentic. Good experience though
Nicer now
Great place for street food

the place was so big and right place to buy typical Vietnamese souvenirs such as snacks, clothes, accessories, magnets etc. Don't forget to haggle over the price because they will charge quite expensive prices for tourists.

벤탄 시장은 복잡하지만, 활기 넘쳐요. 꼭 한번은 와야 하는곳이에요. 무엇보다 벤탄 시장이 평균 시세가 가장 낮아요.(마사지 투어 등)
The best
Lieu plein de vie de Saïgon. Préféré y aller le matin tôt l'ambiance est différente. Vêtement, nourriture, boisson.... Vous trouverez votre bonheur. N'empêche pas d'aller visiter les autres marchés de la ville qui sont aussi incroyable et moin lisse que celui ci.
