Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) - BenThanh Market
Since its birth in the early 19th century, Bến Thành Market has seen its share of disasters. In 1859, a French canon destroyed the market and resulted in its location being moved from Saigon River to Tổng Nha Ngân Khố (Treasury) on Nguyễn Huệ Avenue. In 1870, a fire destroyed a large part of the market. In 1911, the market was intentionally demolished for safety reason and construction began on the present location.
