Han Market Overview
Let Vietnam Shore Excursions show you Han Market. This one is a important landmark in Da Nang, having been in operation since the French occupancy in the 1940s. This local market is established within a two-storey building at the grand intersection of Tran Phu Street, Bach Dang Street, Hung Vuong Street and Tran Hung Dao Street, where you can find hundreds of shops selling an array of local produce, handicrafts, T-shirts, and accessories. It’s very much like a small version of Ben Thanh Market central market in Ho Chi Minh City, and even if you aren’t essentially looking to buy anything it still offers a charming glimpse into local life in Da Nang.
Han Market’s ground level is where locals shop for fresh vegetables, seafood, and butchered meat in the early morning. There are also frequent fruit stalls set in front of the market, where you can buy tropical fruits such as bananas, mangoes, durian, and jackfruit. Ideal as souvenirs for loved ones back home, make sure you stock up on prepacked chilli paste, Ly Son garlic, rice crackers, and dried squid, all of which are available on the same floor.
The Market’s indoor food court proposals just about any Vietnamese dish you can think of, from mi quang (Vietnamese turmeric noodles) and com tam (broken rice) to banh xeo (crispy pancake) and goi cuon (Vietnamese spring rolls), each of which should cost you no more than VND 30,000.
Meanwhile, the upper level is where you can buy home appliances, souvenirs, cosmetics, and fabrics. Some of Da Nang’s top tailors also set up shop in this market, making it a abundant place to get quality yet affordable custom made suits and dresses. Accessible within a four-minute walk from Da Nang Cathedral, Han Market is open every day, but gets especially packed between 06:00 and 11:00 and 16:00 onwards.
