One of the must visit place when you’re in HCMC is the Ben Thanh Market, especially if you’ll be purchasing pasalubongs for your loved ones. This is also a great place to go to when you want to eat authentic Vietnamese street food.
Here I am, all smiles, as I enjoy my coconut juice after a long walk. From our hotel, we just walked towards Ben Thanh Market; which is how the locals would normally do it.
