Super Touristy Ben Thanh Market-Exploring On Foot This Neighborhood Of Saigon, Vietnam

Interested in cheap brand name running shoes, knock off goods and souvenirs when in Saigon? Then head for the Ben Thanh Market as many visitors do! In this episode I get back to doing walkabout podcasts, usually with commentary and questions from live-streaming followers. Ben Thanh Market is probably the most visited tourist site in all of Ho Chi Minh City. Even if you don’t like these places I think it’s still worth a look if it’s your first time. To get a much more authentic local experience head to some of the markets outside of District 1 where less tourists go and locals are more likely to strike up a friendly conversation with nothing more in mind then a little engagement with a foreigner. I also answer some general travel and Vietnam questions as well as other related topics. Thanks so much for listening.
