Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam-Traditional Markets Season 1 Episode 1-Ba Chieu Market is the first of a multi-episode series focusing on local/traditional markets in Ho Chi Minh City,(Saigon). I’ve also been fascinated with traditional markets whether they’re in East Asia, Southeast Asia, or South Asia. My trips aren’t complete without multi-visits to the traditional markets of wherever I’m staying. Fortunately because locals still support these markets, even with the invasion of the hypermarket to Asia, we are blessed to be able to experience these temples of food and the simple great joys of life.
In this series I’ll be covering off some basic tips, suggestions, and of course the most interesting markets Ho Chi MInh City has to offer. All 24 districts have at least one major market but many have several as well as smaller lane markets or street markets as well. I’ll be featuring markets that are usually within about a 15-30 minute taxi ride from District 1, where most visitors stay when they’re in Saigon. I can’t stress how much visiting these markets is so important in discovering and learning more about everyday life in Vietnam. Unlike tourist markets like Ben Thanh Market you’ll find that people aren’t as aggressive at getting your business as they really have no souvenirs to sell and almost all of their customers are local. So in some ways these market are a little more relaxed to wander around, even with the traffic! I just love these places and I hope when you’re visiting Ho Chi Minh City you’ll get the chance to see one or more of these markets during your stay, so much more memorable and authentic than any market that’s primarily focused on tourists.

  1. Absolutely True what you said in this Video John

  2. Yeah fresh food in SG is great, love to see you're fine sir

  3. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  4. from my home to Ba Chieu Market about 200 meters 😀

  5. I prefer Japan. This is crazy.

  6. The world : we are in war with Covid – 19
    Vietnam : what is covid-19 now ?
    hahahaha, just kidding , be safe john

  7. The motorbike in taiwan gave me so much anxiety. I'm not use to a crazy busy city. The motorbikes in the markets dont make sense to me because people cant walk of move around. I guess you get use to it after awhile. I love watching your videos. It is how they do stuff there. They will run you over lol. Are you fluent in the language? I cant wait for your next videos.

  8. I love the markets. The people really make displays of their wares so beautiful. It looks like chaos on first glance but once you see how beautiful and organized it really is, it's truly a work of art♥️

  9. I spent the month of March in Vietnam. It was my first time back since 1970. I had the time of my life. I will be heading back as soon as the country opens to Americans. God knows when that will happen.

  10. Haven’t seen you for a while. Been to that market once, alot of food stand inside and outside. Bargaining is ok even for tourists, don’t be shy.

  11. Good to see you back John missed your Grass Roots Videos

  12. @5:00 – Excellent insight for backpackers in VN that go to smaller cities without "tourist district". The local neighborhood market have low prices and foreigners need not feel like they're about to get ripped off with outrageous price. The full price in those markets are still so freaking cheap by Western standard, why stress out on your holiday by worrying about having to pay, literally, extra 25 cents.

  13. Another amazing video John. Missed your content. Stay safe!

  14. Have you been to Le Van Duyet’s mausoleum? It’s so close to this market. I’m asking ‘cuz I’m secretly (not so secretly now) and selfishly hoping you’ll include it in a vlog… ha!

  15. I Thank you. , love the fruits there. Stay safe.

  16. New subcriber here! It's always calm and fun at the same time watching your vlogs. Thank you!

  17. This is really good thank you

  18. Vietnamese have to shop every every day….

  19. Interesting new topic, John. Nice video as always. Keep 'em coming 🙂

  20. Local markets is where I have always found the best deal! 👍

  21. Nice to always see the local market for the real country feel… Hoping to get back to SE Asia
    one of these days…thanks for the video..

  22. Are you using a drone at the 9:25 mark? I really like the wide angle (fisheye lens?) shots towards the end

  23. Awww, the little lady at around 9:00 told you to, "Be careful of falling!" Hahaha. :')

  24. John, you always make me miss my country, especially nowadays! Appreciate these vlogs so much more than you know!

  25. You'll lose a day of life expectancy each time you're crossing the road in some parts of Asia. If we could travel, eat, and sleep like locals, we could even stretch the dollars much further. be safe & happy travels!

  26. Lol I live near here :))

  27. Any idea when does Vietnam open its borders?

  28. Those motorbikes. I was almost expecting one to come through the bathroom when I was there lol.
