Ben Tre market

Typical and interesting

What we say: 3.5 stars

Ben Tre market is an excellent example of a typical Vietnamese wet market and you'll find it down by the river on Hung Vuong Street.

Early morning wanderers will find oodles of fresh produce, meat under lights and fish under water and the riverfront section has a large range of fresh fruit and cut flowers. You'll find a large selection of pig heads and trotters near the riverside entrance should you be needing some pork. All up it is very photogenic.

If you're wanting to visit primarily to take photos, the earlier you get here the better as while it does operate in fits through the day, early morning is best. Just be careful of your surroundings as motorbikes zip through market aisles that barely fit two people at best.
