"Ever felt like a walking dollar sign?" The money-thing Tip by 34N118W
The money-thing, Ho Chi Minh City: 9 reviews and 4 photos
Ben Thanh Market is in the heart of District 1, the tourist area, so you're not likely to get the best prices on things. As soon as you walk in you'll have people calling "you, you, you!!!" from every direction. Just ignore them until you find something that interests you. Even with some serious bargaining, you'll still pay more than the locals. Even so, that doesn't mean it's not a good price for you. It's all relative. Vietnamese can be some fierce bargainers. Be prepared, and don't let them upset you.
Fun Alternatives: You might want to try shopping around Cho Lon, the Chinatown of Saigon, for lower prices.
