(11:10:39 AM 19/01/2015)
(Tinmoitruong.vn) - There are many markets with odd names in southern Vietnam, so named because of their characteristics. Below are the markets with the most interesting names, which are attractive destinations of tourists.

Bu Loong (bolt) Market

 

 

Special markets


This market is located on Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street, My Long Ward in Long Xuyen City, An Giang Province. This is a familiar address of auto and motorbike mechanics. The only products sold at this market are bolts and bike, auto and motorbike components of all kinds.

 

Ms. Tran Thi Sam, 59, who sells bolts here, said: "Many foreign tourists come here but they did not buy anything because we only sell bolts."

 

This market has been operating for nearly 40 years.

 

Chom Hom (Squatting) Market


Special markets

 


Previously, this market was called Cho Chieu (Afternoon Market) because it only opens in the afternoon. However, the name has been changed into Chom Hom (squatting) to be suitable to the squatting post of traders here.

 

This market is located on Highway 53, in Trung Hieu Commune, Vung Liem District of Vinh Long Province. This rural market attracts a lot of visitors.

 

There are only fresh food and vegetables at the market.

 

Ba Dong (Three Coins) Market


Special markets


Goods sold at this market are very cheap so it is named Ba Dong. This market is located on the bank of the Mang River, in Chanh An Commune, Mang Thit District of Vinh Long Province.

 

However, Ms. My Dung, a local resident, said that the market is named Ba Dong after the founder of this market, a man named Dong, the third (Ba in Vietnamese) son in his family, not because of the cheap prices.
