There is a market called Dong Ba on Tran Hung Dao Street, Hue City, Vietnam. Along the northern bank of the Perfume River is a massive grey building with large red "Chợ Đông Ba" signage (meaning Dong Ba Market). It covers about 16,000 square meters and features a variety of vendors offering anything from fruits, fish, and meat to clothing, handicrafts, and kitchenware. If you're buying items at Dong Ba Market, it's a good idea to haggle because they charge higher prices for tourists but still welcome haggling. Travelers will have the opportunity to learn about Hue's culture by wandering through the market.

The feature of Dong Ba Market, which draws numerous travellers, is the Hue cuisine, rather than the market's trade function. Travelers can either eat street cuisine from sellers around the market or head right to the food court at Dong Ba Market.

The food court, which is located on the ground floor, features numerous food stalls surrounding a dining area with seating for approximately 200 people. Authentic Vietnamese cuisine like pho, fresh spring rolls, stuffed omelets, and others are available for breakfast. If you prefer street cuisine, come to Dong Ba Market in the afternoon; there are numerous popular street food sellers offering at that time for your enjoyment.

Taxis, motorcycles, and cyclos are frequently used to get to Dong Ba Market. You can also take the Hue bus, which has several routes that stop directly in front of the famed market.
