Built in 1889, Dong Xuan Market serves as the biggest covered market in the city. Located in the center of the city's Old Town, this market traces its roots back to a French administration. Though it was destroyed in a fire in 1994, it has since been completely rebuilt. Today it stands as a popular place for local retailers to buy wholesale items and for tourists to explore food and artisanal items. As you walk through the stalls, you will discover local cuisine, fashions, household goods, electronics, and even plants.

Market was messy a lot of things werr thrown all around.
