Ben Thanh Market
- Ben Thanh Market 00:00
This is the recording of the crowded place of Ben Thanh Market, Ho Chi Minh City at daytime. In this market, there are sellers who sells all kinds of commodities, like clothings, souvenirs, local foods, fruits, vegetables, meats, seafoods, and many more. Their stands are grouped on their categories. This famous market was built in 1870 by the French, the market was initially called Les Halles Centrales before being renamed Ben Thanh in 1912.
I recorded the sound with a handy recorder around the food stands, nearby the clothing stands, and also souvenir stands. You can hear the sound of sellers trying to sell their products to the tourists who were visiting. You can also hear the sound of juice blender, plates clattering with spoons and glasses from the stands. There is also conversations between the sellers, and more. The sound of Ben Thanh Market crowds sounded very alive that day.
