Ben Thanh Market is said to be a historical market that dates back to the 1800s.

At that time, there were many rivers and waterways in the city, and luggage was transported by boat, and when crossing the river, it was a boat instead of a bridge.

Ben Than means the place to go to the castle, and it is said that it was named the Ben Than market in the market near the place to go to the castle.

The current Ben Thanh market was built in the 1914 French Indochina era and was renovated in 1950, and the building has a history of over 100 years.

Unlike other colonial architectures, it is unusual that there is a clock tower that can be seen from all sides.

Ben Thanh Market is one of the leading markets in Asia, where individual shops are crowded together with small spaces and the number is 2,000 and the number of visitors per day is about 10,000.
