Today I visited the Da Lat market for a few hours. Not really needing anything; I wanted to see the day market on a Saturday since more produce and other stuff seems to arrive on the weekends. The market is spread out over inside and out and has a nice mall area as well. If you have never been to a market in Vietnam its a bit different. There is a sprawl of stuff and here in Da Lat there are a lot of people selling coats and jackets but the biggest thing is the produce here. This is the breadbasket of Vietnam and you can find everything here fresh.
Here’s a few pictures of people and stuff for sale around the public market.
Clothing is easy to find at the market but jackets and sweaters rule along with socks!
Fresh produce at the market! There is a lot of veggies, fruit, even coffee.
Food is all over and shopping is intense!
It was a good day walking around the market today. I walked back by the lake and the rain threatened a bit but after just a brief bout, it stopped and let me get back to my room.
I leave in a few days for Nha Trang which is completely different than Da Lat. Nha Trang is a beach city with lots of tourists and a really beautiful beach area. I’ll have two full days to explore there and then I bus back to Da Lat. On the Monday after, I go on a day tour to see some stuff around Da Lat.
