Buy products with listed price

This is the most important thing you must remember, not only in markets here but also all the markets in your Vietnam tours. There are many stores in each Danang market which offer the same types of products. The board of market management always inspects all the stores and commands the sellers to list the price for each item. However, it is still hard to put everything in control.

Some stores always cheat consumers by pulling the price up. If tourists do not pay attention, they may buy the same product at a high-rocket price. Remember to bargain before making any purchasing decisions. You can start by asking the sellers to reduce 20% of the price. Being careful and smart when buying!

Bargain is necessary

A more complicated thing is that in Danang market and even all the market in Vietnam, there are many types for the same products. For instance, dried squid, there are type 1, type 2, type 3 and type 4. They seem similar but different in quality. The lowest price does not always mean the lowest quality. However, you should not buy too cheap products to avoid the buy-just-to-watch case. So it will be better if you have a local citizen to go with you.

Danang specialities are offered at most markets. You should go to the big one like Han, Con, Hoa Khanh,…for specialities like mam, dried seafood, nem tre, beef sausage. If you are a food lover, Bac My An will be your must-to-go market with many foods offered at a low price.

Danang market is definitely an amazing part of Danang local tours. However, to best enjoy the shopping experiences here, there are critical things you must remember.
