37/50.-Saigon, Cholon - Binh Tay Market

Binh Tay market is the biggest market in Saigon. It is located in the city's Chinatown, Cholon. Although this is mainly a wholesale market, it is a visit you should not miss. A walk inside the market will be a pleasure for your senses. The market is quite far from the city center. If you do not want to take a taxi, there is a bus that will take you here. Ask your hotel.

Currently several hundred thousand Chinese origin citizens live in Saigon. If you have some time left, take a walk around the streets in Cholon. You will see a clear Chinese influence in this district. Most shop signs are written in Chinese Characters. Remember that Vietnamese is one of the few Southeast Asian languages that use the Latin Characters.
