Tech geek and nostalgic? Nhat Tao – Nhật Tảo street in Saigon is for you.

Nhat Tao street is usually called  ‘the electronics market’ by  the Saigoneers. It is actually the biggest secondhand electronic devices market in Saigon. All of the small electronics shops and vendors selling goods appear on the both sides of the street. 

You can find secondhand items such as camera lenses, zippos, adapters, television remotes and so on.

Lots of electronic items are piled up in on the ground. The street is always crowded with people coming up and bargaining every day.

There is a Thống Nhất soccer stadium nearby, also there are some small street food stalls around for you to boost up your energy after a tiring day of going to the busy street.

  1. Nhat Tao street looks like a fantastic place to explore. I know my Son would love to go to an Electronics market.

  2. I’ve become a fan of your blog and keep coming back! Love the style in which you write and take the pictures. It’s so personal and shows the places as they are. I don’t like the typical touristy style of picture taking and you make it seem like you get a glimpse of the surroundings through the eyes of a local. Really appreciate it.

  3. Seems like a very popular and hectic place to hang out. I’m curious, you said that they sell second hand electronics, right? Where do they get their merchandise from?
