Saigon's largest fish market. Nights only. All night long. 365 days a year. An aggressive place where aggressive people do aggressive things with fish. Read more about Chanh Hung market or just go and watch a video of the madness. I shot it on a cameraphone at around 2am on the same night as these snaps.

I'm from Hong Kong, and now live in Toronto, Canada. We dont get places like that here in the lovely Canada. We do, but .. I guess not to that degree. I miss it somewhat, actually--the hustle bustle. After browsing your pictures, I can just smell it all.

Yup - this is an amazing place. I've visited a lot of fish markets in Asia, but there's none quite like this. Very, very Vietnamese. I love the place, but it isn't an *easy* place to visit.
