Da Lat Night Market offers what seems like an endless number of food stalls, which spill into the streets around Nguyen Thi Minh Khai. Offering many local favourites at affordable prices, some of the most popular ones include traditional rice noodles, banh mi, Vietnamese pizza (grilled rice paper with a variety of topping), and finish it off with fresh soy milk.
The market attracts many people during the evening - some for the food, some for the atmosphere, and some to perform or to watch street performers. Hip-hop dancing, roller skating, and jainzi (shuttlecock kicking that’s like badminton with your feet) all happen in the market’s open spaces. Though freshly-cooked food is the focus of the night market, other items, including textiles, traditional clothes, flowers, and fresh produce are all available as well.
Da Lat Night Market Highlight
Because the market sprawls out into the surrounding streets, it’s sometimes difficult to tell which way is which, so tours are available to keep you from walking circles. Though it is common to bargain over produce and other goods during the daytime, it is not common to haggle over prepared food in the evening, as most prices are fixed.
The Da Lat Night Market is located right in Da Lat city centre, just a five-minute walk from Xuan Huong Lake. Open daily between 17:00 and 22:00, it’s within walking distance from most places in the city.
