Shopping on Dong Khoi

VIETNAM | Thursday, 10 January 2008 | Views [1142]

First off to the Ben Thanh market - a chaotic indoor arrangement of shops and stalls. All senses take a hit here, perhaps the smells being the more noteworthy. Unable to find anything to tickle our fancy we resolved instead to hit the downtown Dong Khoi street, where we handed over our Vietnamese currency in exchange for all sorts of local goods, planning to decorate our un-purchased home.

After last night's catastrophe of a (long long) walk through town to find dinner, we've a bit more of an understanding of the layout of the city centre, which, with a bit of luck, will aid us tonight - on the last night of our trip.
