Absolutely worth a visit to catch a glimpse of local daily life. Such a variety of fresh foods, fabrics, scarves, incense sticks and much more...One section of the market is reserved for cooked food and eating space. Very clean and so much choice....Reasonably priced. Allow...More

It’s well worth having a look around this indoor market as well as the area outside where street sellers work.

Lots to see, smell, photograph, buy and taste. It is a great way to see how and what the locals are growing and eating. Seems a bit easier to use Dong here rather than USD.

A great market to stroll around in. I ordered a pair of thongs to be made up for my Son-In-Law and they were ready the next day. I also purchased several gifts that I could take home for relatives and friends.

You can buy fake bags, watches and sunglasses at any shops who sell them in the shopping area of Hoi An, which is quite a few. There are no shortage of theses items available.
