Where: Ben Thanh market and Champa Muslim
When: 1st until 3rd day of our trip
What: Shop till you drop
There are a lot of markets and shopping complex in Ho Chi Minh City that you can go to. We only went to Ben Thanh Market and a few shop lots near the area to shop. Ben Thanh market is located in District 1 of HCMC.
|The north entrance of Ben Thanh Market.|
|The hectic market|
|Everything at a cheaper price. The secret is BARGAIN until the price is affordable.|
There are a lot of things you can buy here at a cheaper price compare to other places. I love HCMC as I can find a lot of things to buy here but regretted bringing small amount of money to spend here. On the first day itself, I spent rm700. It may be a small amount to some people but that's a big amount for me.
|Vietnam Silk Scarves 3USD each|
|RM55 each from Champa Muslim|
|Ready made Baju Kurung|
|A lot of colours to choose at Champa Muslim|
|Vietnam Silk 6USD per meter|
|super soft Pashmina|
|Colored jubah at Champa Muslim|
|Bookmarks which I bought 3 for 1USD. It's cheaper to buy it here than at the airport which cost 65,000 VDong each|
I went to a shop; Champa just in front of Ben Thanh market and found cheap baju kurung which has beads more than enough for only rm50. So I bought 6 on the first day and another one on out 3rd day. Champa shop is a restaurant and boutique. You can find delicious affordable halal food here. You can even stop to pray here. Just ask nicely.
|Super spicy super delicious Laksa Daging|
I tried ther laksa daging and I love it. I'm a big fan of laksa, so I ate it without hesitation. This was my first time eating laksa daging. It contains bean sprout, meat, and delicious soup to slurp. Something delicious to try if you're here.
