They exchange information about goods and then how to calculate money is also quite interesting, only a Casio calculator and a few operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division both parties understand exactly the amount to be paid and how much to give back. It’s a fun transaction and creates scenes where tourists and locals both laugh back and forth so cutely and intimately.

In addition, tourists coming here can also rent bicycles at the hotel to freely roam around this fun shopping center and night market. Because this is a market area where trucks are not allowed, it is very safe for visitors, especially foreigners.

When walking to the end of the market, the legs also get tired, the food and beverage area at the end of the market will solve the empty stomach at night for visitors; This is a stop to enjoy specialty dishes amidst the noisy atmosphere of the market by the quiet space of the gently flowing Ben Tre River.
