4. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Night Market vendors is best for T-Shirts and handbags

Lastminute.com reviewer Sum shares, "It's about 34-35 c for the most day. Very sunny you may want to bring a hat or an umbrella . . The local cuisine is great, no matter you eat in the restaurant or on the street. Hang out with the local by the Turtle Lake roundabout. This is where the local hangout and eat street foods. You must visit the CU Chi Tunnel, fire any type of firearms. Haggle with the night market vendors, it is just fun to see how far the price you can get down to."

5. Taipei, Taiwan Raohe Night Market is buzzing with good crowds and great deals

Lastminute.com reviewer Nicholalbbb says, "Taipei is all about the food. Street food is everywhere and super delicious, and there's nothing better than getting lost in a bustling night market with only your taste buds to guide you. There's plenty to see in Taipei of course, but it's just as easy to use as a base for making day trips out to other towns and villages, as the transportation networks are second to none."
