Nguyen Thi Minh Khai St, Dalat

Dalat's central market is a good spot for an early morning wander. The building's a special piece of Vietnamese modernist architecture and the local life in and around the market is a great spectacle. It's a good spot for trying some local dishes like banh trang nuong as well.

The central roundabout of Dalat at the top end of Nguyen Thi Minh Khai becomes jammed with buyers and sellers of a myriad of wares every morning of the week.

Get here at the crack of dawn to witness an amazing bustle of commerce.

Dalat is famous for its flowers and vegetables and here they’re on sale in a wondrous profusion of colour and noise. The marketers surround the roundabout and are perched on every one of the few dozen steps that lead from Nguyen Thi Ming Khai up to Le Dai Hanh.

This is a particular enjoyable Vietnam market experience. Make sure you get here early for its best scenes.

Come back in the evening for a different experience - when the emphasis switches to food.
