Finding Christmas In A Wholesale Market In Saigon, Vietnam

I always love visiting the Binh Tay Market in District 6 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It’s chaotic in the slowest of times. When I first started visiting HCMC I often visited the market in the mornings but lately I’ve been making my way out to D6 in the afternoons when the light is just right and the atmosphere is still frenzied. It’s also a fun place to visit to see what seasonal items are for sale. During Halloween it was interesting masks, plastic internal organs, and other decorations. In this episode I’m checking out the various Christmas decorations and items for sale. This is also one of the best places to come for food in the greater Saigon area. Whether you’re looking for dumplings, because of the historic Chinese community here, or local food, that night I had banh xeo, (sizzling pancakes), at one of my favorite spots. Thanks so much for listening!
