This is certainly a portion of the HEART and SOUL of Hoi An?I say a portion because I think in addition to the market area of Hoi An?the river also plays a significant role in the heartbeat of the city?
In any event?THE MARKET is a bustling, lively, and colorful MUST see when you?re in town?just to browse the many stalls of goods available...vegetables, eggs, the noodle maker, the lady selling salt by the bag or the man carving wooden Buddha?s ?you?ll need to dodge motorbikes and people on bicycle ? prepare yourself if you?re in someone?s way to get a strong finger in the small of your back to get you to move out of the way..Ha?It happened a couple of times to me?
There?s a section sort of off on its own where the fish mongers are at work?buying and selling. but if you arrive after early morning its mostly just selling?
The smells, the noises, the color all make it a really interesting spot to hang out for a while.
Just be warned that it?s a busy spot and you really need to keep your wits about you?
I visited a few times?as this was a way to cut through to our favorite lunch spot.,. the Banana Café?
You likely cant help but find the market?its along the waterfront street?on Bac Dang Street just West of the bridge that goes over to Can Nam Island?
Directions: Old Quarter...at the end of Hoang Dieu STreet
