Dong Ba Market
Dong Ba Market is only one of the many famous marketplaces of Vietnam. But, it knows how to keep its visitors well-satisfied. At its heart, Dong Ba is a frenetic warren of colorful stalls covered in the country’s finest fresh produce and locally-made goods. Walking on the arrayed pavements, you will feel the raw sense of shopping in the old days surrounded by genial vendors, handwoven bamboo trays, and the daily hustle of trade.
Dong Ba is among the highlights of Hue as the earliest of its kind. Centuries-old traditions come to life in local products. Among them, the iconic Vietnamese conical hats and the delicious rice and seafood dishes are the favorite. Despite several new markets opening in the city, most locals still come to Dong Ba for the quality of its goods. A splash of cultural value is what elevates them all the more. It is also a center for tasting Southeast Asian food. Locals seem to have made a tradition out of snacking on the popular “five-color” cakes.
Every day from dawn till dusk, Dong Ba crackles with the sounds of locals shopping in bulks, offering a refreshing spectacle for visitors. You will find exquisite fruits, vegetables, dried fruits, and nuts in the eastern section. A carnival of home products, knick-knacks, and clothes await deep in the market. As you continue your walking tour, help yourself with some of Hue’s mouth-watering specialties like a local.
