Lots to see here even if you don't buy anything, but do try the food, there's so much and it's so good. I paid $1.50 for the greatest Fish Pho of my life. Maze like structure, so take your time exploring.

Central market is vast and plenty of choice. Gems, watches, jewellery and a limited bit of technology in the centre. Clothes, shoes, bags, luggage, housewares and food radiating out in all directions. It's cooler inside than expected due to impressive design, but remains very cramped!...More

This market is huge but all the stalls are numbered so if you like something just make a note of it so you can find it again as there are different arms coming away from the centre & it's not easy to recognise where you...More

First and foremost this is a shopping opportunity. It is very colourful and bustling inside a photogenic building. The food part is the best part although there are chances to buy Rolex watches!!!???
