Much like the Han Market in Da Nang, Phan Thiet Central Market offers a tapestry of fresh products and handy household items. Packed with delicious seafood, blossoming flowers, and local delicacies, Phan Thiet Central Market is a must-visit for foodies.
Close to Mui Ne’s fishing villages, one of the region’s highlights, Phan Thiet Central Market is renowned for its bustling maritime trade, the area boasts some of the country’s most delicious seafood. Each morning, fresh crab, scallops, and fish arrive in Phan Thiet and are sold on the market that same day, feeding hundreds of hungry locals and travelers.
In addition to the wonderful seafood, there are also homemade Vietnamese delicacies such as pancakes, noodles, sauces, and delicious spices available. Prices are generally very cheap but don’t let that stop you from testing out your haggling skills. Phan Thiet Central Market is also a great place to purchase textiles, household items, and stunning ceramic plates and bowls.
Its versatility has been one of the main reasons behind its prolonged success, and a visit there is definitely recommended if you are looking for things to do in the city. Keep in mind that the region gets extremely hot in the summer and the market can get busy, so be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and arrive early.
Not only will the crowds not be there, but you’ll also be able to navigate the market before the heat starts to take hold. If you wish to see the market bustling, then head there during the morning rush hour or during the evening. Make sure to work up an appetite before so you can enjoy this market’s delicious produce!
