1, this bustling street market gets really packed in the mornings as locals come
here to shop for fresh fruits, spices, nuts, seafood, and household supplies.
Throughout the day (and night), you can see rows of coffee traders with various
beans on display and stalls selling apparels, textiles, luggage, watches,
handicrafts, and electronic goods until 24:00. Ben Thanh Market is also a good
place to get your fill of inexpensive street food such as pho noodles, spring rolls,
and banh xeo (crispy pancake).
