"Rip off prices at Ben Thanh Market" Stores & Markets Tip by KChiong

Stores & Markets, Ho Chi Minh City: 104 reviews and 168 photos

Depending on how you gotta bargain, shopping at Ben Thanh can be a ripoff. As a general thumb of rule, always bargain below half the asking price. For example, 'Adidas' polo tees should not be bought for more than 70000 dongs and 'Abercrombie' bermudas not more than 22000 dongs. You will notice than after Ben Thanh has closed, road side stalls will start to operate selling the same things mainly apparels. Theirs are much more cheaper
