Visitors to HCM City’s Ho Thi Ky flower market in District 10 can easily find many Vietnamese people of Cambodian descent selling mainly Cambodian specialties at what is known informally as the Cambodian Market.

The bustling flower market is busiest at midnight. 


Guests should stop by Co Co’s sweet soup stall to enjoy the flavour of Cambodian-style steamed pumpkin pudding, mixed pudding served with durian, sweet egg  soup, and sticky rice made with durian and coconut milk called Xoi Xiem, with prices starting from VNĐ20,000 (US$0.9) each.

Visitors should not miss Pahok noodle soup at Tu Xe’s restaurant. Made with Pahok sauce, snakehead fish, vermicelli, and lemongrass leaves, the specialty reflects authentic Cambodian fare. The restaurant is popular with homesick Cambodians in the city.

Shoppers can buy dry foods made from various types of fermented fish, fish sauce and shrimp, as well as clothes, fashion items and jewelries imported from Cambodia.
