What guidebook does not tell you about

Opposite to Ho Chi Minh Museum is a local market, taking place in a small alley visible from the entrance to the Museum. If you want to separate yourself from the tourist crowd, head to the market. There are a lot of food options on offer, from the famous Pho (Vietnamese noodles) and Che (Vietnamese pudding) to baguette and other local fares. Not only will you get a lunch deal, compared with what you would pay in the Old Quarter, but you will also have the unique chance to communicate with the “real” local.
