Markets are the lifeblood of Vietnam. There are thousands of them. Every little village has one, as do the biggest cities. You can buy anything like meat, fresh seafood, vegetables, fruits or all types, eggs, and much more. There are food stalls where you can sit on a small plastic stool and taste. The markets are always bustling, crowded, and exciting. These markets seem to exist in another dimension to the rest of the city. These should places if you really want to discover culture and life here.
