Ben Thanh Market (Saigon)

We took a weekend trip recently to Saigon. We wanted to try the Park Hyatt again because the hotel is amazing. The restaurant there is amazing, but that story will be posted soon. One of the great things to do when we are in Saigon is to visit the very famous market, Ben Thanh Market.

We normally go after lunch, which is a huge mistake on our part because the market has some of the best Vietnamese food around. It always looks so tempting and the other amazing thing is that it cost nothing.

Here is one of the stalls displaying the yummy food.

Here is another stall with different type of Vietnamese food.

Another great thing about the market is the selection of food stuff being sold. The market has practically everything you need to cook Vietnamese food. From fresh vegetables, fresh seafood, meats, etc. They have it.
