Ben Thanh Market illustrates the character of HCM City and provides a place for many to earn their living.
Sunset brings with it trade
The nighttime is the busiest time for the market, and has become a place where people not only come to buy and sell, but also simply observe the activity and take in the atmosphere. Around 200 stalls offer all kinds of products, ranging from souvenirs to cosmetics to food.
Setting up shop
The food stalls have become some of the most attractive, serving up regional specialties from all over the country.
