Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam-Traditional Markets S1 -S1 Episode 2-Vuon Chuoi Market/Secret Weapons Basement located in District 3 is a wonderfully authentic market and neighborhood combined with a national landmark-the Caphe Do Phu, the former house that with it's secret basement filled with 2 tons of weapons was a major part of the Tet Offensive that commenced on Jan. 30, 1968. As I mentioned in the video I believe in order to understand the history of Saigon, (Ho Chi Minh City), and it's people it's really important to visit these sites and neighborhoods for an unfiltered view of everyday life. Down the alleys and streets in this part of District 3 you'll be hard pressed to find a chain coffee shop or restaurant. Lots of local independent businesses like the market sellers and shops that surround Vuon Chuoi Market along with indie cafes like Caphe Do Phu which is also a designated cultural site. The market and cafe are within 5 minutes of each other so they make a perfect morning visit. This is the second episode in a multi-series on the Traditional Markets and their neighborhoods in Ho Chi Minh City.
