Because of the food stalls inside the market, I started to love cao lau, white rose and other dishes from central Vietnam. If you’re adventurous with food and would like to eat cheaply, this is the place to go.

More locals than tourists but this place is an amazing value for food. We ate at one of the many food stalls inside. I think we ate 4 things for $5 USD. So full and good.

Love this stall E051, one of the best Banh Xeo in town. You can also get freshly pressed juice from the stall E032 across.

I am visiting this lady the 3rd time. Search for her in the market for rice pancakes 30 VND and Banana flower salad 40VND.. A perfect combo for lunch or dinner.

You can buy fake bags, watches and sunglasses at any shops who sell them in the shopping area of Hoi An, which is quite a few. There are no shortage of theses items available.
