Not That Great

At this market you can get many things at reasonable proces. but you have to be sure of bargaining or they quote a high prize and you end up buying it.

All the inside building is closed for renovation. All the shops are in containers outside in the street. Very small place for all the stuff. Only for big retailers. Note: be careful with transportation. Go there it's easy getting back in a Taxi can be very difficult to find one available. They come if you call it by phone only.

The main market is shut for a refurb - currently a temporary structure in the road which is cramped and selling wholesale toys, knock-off goods etc. Doesn't really seem to be somewhere you'd go for a wander around. Apparently pickpockets abound which I can easily believe. Nearby are a few pagodas which aren't really worth going out for on their... More

We had come all the way to Cholon with specific intent of visiting Cho Binh Tay, which used to be quite bustling. However as we approached by foot we were taken aback by all the temporary barracks in the streets surrounding (but hoped it was due to the metro being dug underground) - unfortunately, the market is closed since November...

The market is currently closed and they have shifted it to temporary buildings that are not at all appealing. Very cramped and I can only see locals going there for the food or plastic baskets. Not worth the ride down and back.

There are renovations going on here, so I think that where the market currently is, may be temporary, but I am not sure. However, there really are bargains to be got here. There is not much space to walk around, so be patient and be careful and respectful with other people. This was really good.

Just another market with people trying to steal your money with hyper-inflated prices on Made in China souvenirs. Good to visit to get some food but when comes to souvenirs you can find alternative style souvenirs done by artists or designers around the town. Only good think about the market is the central location.

The actual market is closed for renovation but you can still visit the distributed temporary sites. The scale is equivalent to small universal studio theme park interspersed with busy roads. I witnessed a snatch thief on motor bike that went against traffic flow to rob an suspecting tourist of his handphone. The tourists gave chase to no avail so please... More

I went here hoping to strike a bargain with some of the goods. But because the actual market is close or relocated. Not sure for what reason, it doesn't feel the same. The new location seems to be unorganised and very tight to move around. It discourage people to actually buy from there. But it's still not a bad place... More
