Markets in Vietnam are fascinating not only because of the food on display but because of the people.

It is a big event. Some people have walked, cycled or rode their motorbikes quite far to come to a market to sell their goods and to bring something home to eat for the next few days.

It is also a social event and the opportunity to meet friends and family. The stalls or small restaurants in the vicinity of a market are the best places to eat as the meals have been cooked with fresh ingredients.

I'm very pleased you like the series about Vietnam. It is such a fantastic country. The people are so friendly.

Hoping you like today's offering. I normally don't take pictures of people.

Thank you for stopping and having a look at my photos. If you have not done so have a peep at the previous uploads.

All comments welcome.

Have a nice day and don't work too hard,

Very difficult to select from a superb set. I love V3 but they are all wonderful and such a great perspective on the local market.

all great captures. I loved Hanoi when I visted. A fascinating country that still retains its own identity, Long may globalisation wait to invade this spectacular country.

great collection Jean

I wish that white box was not there/ or placed some where else in 1. liked 4,5, 7 and 1
some can be worked at a little bit like 3 would look a lot different of straightened perhaps?

enjoyed this series very much. keep them coming Smile
