"Binthay Market" Binh Tay Market Tip by schurman23

Binh Tay Market, Ho Chi Minh City: 7 reviews and 22 photos

This is a local market where you can buy a lot of stuffs in wholesale. The problem here is that the place is too crowded and hot inside and the vendors were not speaking in English. If youre into haggling, you can do it better in Ben Than market.

The guide explained that once there was a life size bronze statue of the Chinese businessman who built and invested in the construction of this market in the center of the Binh Tay that was encircled by four bronze lions, and four bronze dragons. The dragons’ mouths form the opening for the fountain under which the statue of the businessman was standing. The statue was replaced with a smaller glass-altar later, though the four bronze lions and dragons are still there
