In Asia, the market is a staple in just about every community.
People go to markets to buy everything from fresh vegetables to gardening supplies; from snack foods to clothing. And, traveling around Vietnam, I had the chance to visit my fair share of markets.
Markets in the cities were packed and chaotic.
Markets in the countryside were colorful — but still chaotic.
All of them were full of character.
There were even floating markets at Ha Long Bay!
Regardless of which kind they are — city, countryside, or floating — markets in Vietnam are an important aspect of daily life and give you a unique glimpse into the culture of this country.
So if you head to Vietnam anytime soon, be sure to check out the local markets!
