Dong Ba Market is the biggest commercial centre of Thua Thien Hue province and the adjacent regions. It stands in the north bank of Perfume river, on Tran Hung Dao street of Hue city and stretches from Trang Tien bridge to Gia Hoi bridge . Đông Ba Market is not only a commercial centre but also the soul of the ancient capital- Hue city because it still preserves unique and special beauty.

What to see

When visiting Dong Ba Market, tourists can easily spot the old bell tower standing proudly amidst the complex of buildings. With nine new buildings and four new sections ranging from seafood to clothes, the market reaches an area of up to 16,000m2.

However, the architecture is not really a highlight but the atmosphere and the daily pace of the market itself. Similar to most of Vietnamese markets, this one is divided into different sections, depending on the types of products. The whole floor upstair is for garment and clothes.
