The Dong Van market is located in the center of Dong Van district, adjacent to the old quarter area. This fair market only operates once a week, on Sunday mornings, the same as Meo Vac Market. Both markets open at 5 AM and reach their peak crowded time from 7 to 9 AM. We recommend visiting the market during this time to fully experience its beauty.
