Ho Chi Minh City Market – Let's Explore



Join me for a visit to the Tan My Market, one of the most interesting local markets in Ho Chi Minh City. Most people that visit Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon for the first time end up at the Ben Thanh Market. Nothing wrong with that, it’s an interesting place too, one of the oldest markets in the country. But it left behind it’s traditional roots along time ago and today is geared almost exclusively to tourists. If you want a true authentic market experience, I mean where they still kill chickens to order, sell live fish, frogs, and other seafood out of tanks or aluminum trays, then head for the Tan My Market in District 7 or one of several traditional markets that still do business everyday in and around the greater Ho Chi Minh area. Not only will you be able to observe daily life in a neighborhood like this one, but you won’t be constantly asked if you want to buy a t-shirt, or coffee, or anything! In fact if you have any engagement at all with locals it will be the friendly warm welcoming that people in these neighborhoods exude, especially at the sign of a rare visit from a foreigner. If you do want to buy, most everyone will be happy to help you, and even though their English skills will be limited or non existent, they’ll still find a way to communicate. I also find in these markets that everyone is fairly honest, in fact I would be shocked if you weren’t given the local price everyone else gets. Thanks for watching! I would love to connect with you.

  10. I'm visiting HCMC in a few months and the thought of crossing the street with traffic like that's freaking me out lmao. Great video, though.
