Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Authorities in Ho Chi Minh City have approved a renovation plan for Ben Thanh Market, a tourist attraction in the city.

The renovation project would include the upgrade of infrastructure and four main gates, all downgraded after many years of use.

Its metal roofing will also be tiled.

Funding for the renovation project will come from private sources.

Covering an area of 13,000 square meters, Ben Thanh Market in District 1 has long been a tourist magnet in the southern metropolis that attracted thousands of foreign visitors each year before the pandemic.

Built in 1870 by the French, the market was initially called Les Halles Centrales before being renamed Ben Thanh in 1912. Today the market operates all year round and opens from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
