Binh Tay Market Tours

2 Reviews
Binh Tay Market
At the heart of Cho Lon, Ho Chi Minh City’s Chinese district, sits Binh Tay Market. Built in 1928 after the original bazaar burned down, Binh Tay is the city’s largest market teeming with vendors selling a mind-boggling array of wares, including pottery, flowers, and cheap souvenirs, as well as piping hot noodles and wholesale produce.
 
The Basics
More than 2,000 stalls operate within this chaotic market, where visitors come to buy spices, textiles, and street food. Encompassing four city blocks, Binh Tay is part of most city sightseeing tours, including shore excursions for cruisers at Phu My Port. Guided cyclo tours of Vietnam’s largest Chinatown include time to shop the market plus visits to Lady Thien Hau Temple and Cha Tam Church, while dedicated shopping tours offer bargain-hunting tips from a local guide.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to Binh Tay Market is a must for foodies and shopping enthusiasts.
  • Tour the market with a local guide for tips on what to buy and how to get the best prices.
  • Bring cash in small denominations and be prepared to haggle.
  • How to Get There
  • Binh Tay Market is located in the southwest part of the city, a 17-minute drive from Dong Khoi and 35 minutes from Tan Son Nhat Airport.
 
When to Get There
Binh Tay is open throughout the day, but the best time to visit is in the morning when the market is busiest. Stick around for a late breakfast or early lunch in the food court.
 
History of the Market
Quach Dam, a disabled Chinese immigrant who got his start collecting scrap, founded Binh Tay Market. Keep an eye out for the shrine that was built in his honor, located in the central courtyard of the market.
