Dong Ba Market
Cho Dong Ba Market

"Known as the biggest local market in Hue, that why we came here to see. It was big and crowded. It was hard to walk through but it was not so bad. All the people are very friendly. There are a lot of items for sale which are quite cheap. It was nice to see all the things were displayed out door and people came in check then bargain. It is pretty cool."


Cho Dong Ba Markt

          De Cho Dong Ba Market- is located on the north bank of the Huong River (Tran Hung Dao Street). The market extends from the Trang Tien Bridge to the Gia Hoi Bridge. This market is also important for the rest of the province.
Before this market existed, there was already a large market (the Qui Gia Thi), which was just outside the Chanh Dong Gate. In the summer of 1885, Hué was attacked and the Qui Gia Thi burned Market down to the floor. Only in 1887 King Dong Khanh decided to rebuild the market and he called it the Dong Ba Market. Since then, the market has been a supplier for palaces, hospitals, army camps and universities. In 1899 the market was moved to its current position. Although Dong Ba Market has undergone various changes since the beginning of the 20th century, it still has many old characteristics.

The Dong Ba Market is a concatenation of 9 buildings, in which you can easily find the old tower. The total area is 16,000 m2. Everything is sold from fish to clothing.
The architecture of the building is not really a highlight, but the atmosphere and daily life on the market itself. Compared to most other Vietnamese markets, this market is divided into different sections depending on the types of products. The entire top floor for clothing and clothing.
The most special gifts and souvenirs from Hué can be found here. Traditional dishes are also sold on this market. It is said that Dong Ba market is the place where you can buy the most delicious dishes. The "food court" is known for its high quality.

 

Today, the Dong Ba Market still has an important place in the economy and commerce of the city, although there are many supermarkets.
The sellers on the market will want to sell you anything. They will make it clear to you that you really have a bargain with them. Believe that, but not! Once you have found something, you must start negotiations by bidding 505 of the asking price. The sellers can speak very bad english. So they will use a calculator to make the price clear. Of course you can then take over the calculator to show it the lower price. If you buy several souvenirs, you can bargain even more
Als je geluk hebt en goed in afdingen, heb je werkelijk een koopje. Het leven in Hué hoeft niet duur te zijn.

The market starts early in the morning: at 3 a.m. Especially the food stalls are being prepared. So early in the morning it is beautiful to follow the negotiations. At daybreak the residents can buy the freshest products for a low price.
Around 5,000 to 7,000 visitors come to the market every day.
