  • If it's a souvenir for tourists selling in the city of Hoi An's World Heritage area, this is a little more local market. Of course, there are many tourists like us, but it was fun to see people living in the neighborhood negotiate and shop.

  • He says they're until 23:45, but by 21:30 it was closed. A total disappointment. Besides outside, it doesn't even look like the one in the pictures.

  • Any and everything you need. I bought drip coffee makers and graters which can make those papaya salads I love so much. The food looked great though I didn’t try any. Dont be shy to bargain!
  • come here if you want to try local food during the day, you will find a lot of fruits and delicious food to eat and cheap.
