Solid five stars for the vibe here, chill, relaxing, and fancy, you may get better scenery during night time; short boat tour will be a must-choose option, it takes around 10 to 15 minutes (I highly recommend to try it at night!!); overall the experience was great except the part of food, the restaurant I went wasn't very well, but the environment was clean and tidy after all! If you're arranging or considering to visit here, please stay till 6 or 7, you won't regret the view 😀

Really nice city to visit. Just recommend coming earlier if possible, you can come with a grab for a guided tour. If you have time, would be nice to stay at least one night there because have a lot to see and good bars and restaurants. The night boat ride is really cool and beautiful.

**Atmosphere:** The market exudes a charming ambiance with colorful lanterns and a lively crowd from around the world and local tourists, creating a vibrant and memorable experience. **Cultural shopping.** Explore a wide array of Vietnamese crafts, textiles, and souvenirs, providing an opportunity to immerse oneself in the local culture. Be prepared to shop around as well as haggle for the best price. Offer everything at 1/2 of the asking price and be prepared to walk away. **Scenic Riverside Location:** The market's location along the Thu Bon River enhances the overall experience, offering beautiful views and a relaxing setting at night. **Affordable Prices:** Compared to daytime markets, prices are reasonable, making it a budget-friendly destination for shopping and dining.**Crowded Peak Hours:** During peak tourist hours, the market can become congested, making it challenging to navigate and enjoy the stalls comfortably.**Limited Authenticity:** Some stalls may cater more to tourists, offering generic souvenirs rather than authentic local products, which can be disappointing for those seeking genuine cultural items. Try and venture out to the local markets if you are feeling adventurous.**Persistent Vendors:** While part of the charm, persistent vendors at times can be overwhelming, pushing visitors to buy, creating a less relaxed shopping experience.**Food Quality Variability:** While there are excellent food options, the quality can vary among vendors, so it's advisable to choose wisely to ensure a satisfying dining experience. Try and avoid vendors that have more foreigners than locals in their venue.
