HCM CITY — Hồ Thị Kỷ Flower Market and Bến Thành Night Market are ideal places to get a broader picture of Sài Gòn’s nightlife.

Hồ Thị Kỷ, the city’s largest wholesale flower market, has more than 100 households selling hundreds of kinds of flowers. It operates round the clock and is most vibrant between midnight and 2am, when retailers rush back and forth with fresh produce.

Meanwhile, the outdoor night market next to the iconic Bến Thành Market serves mostly hungry night owls and curious travelers, which partly explains the reason for the slightly higher prices of the dishes here.

Expensive as it is, the market is still the go-to place for many owing to its convenient location.

Open from 7pm, the market operates well into the evening and also has stalls selling clothing, jewellery and other items. — VNS
