Caravelle Hotel to the Market

Not too far from the Caravelle Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, past all the street vendors shouting, “Madame, madame,” is the intriguing Ben Thanh Market.  The building reminds one of Les Halles in Paris, but with a remarkably different set of scents and merchandise.  I could have spent hours exploring all the spaces of the market, with its colorful displays of exotic produce and seafood.
