Basically, the only place I have in mind for shopping in District 1 was the Ben Thanh market, but after we checked in at our hotel, the receptionist asked us where we were to go on that evening, and strangely, she recommended us to check out the Saigon Square (it was not Ben Thanh that she recommended.. why?!@#$%) Appreciating the... 更多
There are two Saigon Square malls 1 and 2. I personally prefer new no 2 but this is personal preference. Goods and quality is similar. This place is about copied and fake goods. Because Vietnam produces also the clothes for wide range brands like Burbeŕry or Polo you can sometimes catch real found with original Burberry fot 20 dollars. Even... 更多
Cheap but Original NorthFace Bags can be found here. Just look for Anne in Stall #48. she's very friendly and can give you more discounts. I just had 1 NF Surge backpack from her since 2013 and still I use this bag on my travels. She will also teach you how to catch an original NorthFace bag from an imitation.... 更多
Saigon Square at Hai Ba Trung Plus points - air conditioned, less aggressive sales people, latest designs for guys Negative points - similar to Benh Tanh or Lucky Plaza Dong Khoi Did I buy any? - nope.

If you are looking for cheap goods such as leather products, clothings and shoes, this is the place. But be warned that they are mostly imitation goods, therefore they are cheap. In Saigon Square you normally will not be harassed by salespersons as you will encounter in Cho Ben Thanh Market. Please ensure to bargain when doing your purchases. If... 更多
After reading reviews I was very excited to visit Saigon Square, i was very disappointed. There are clothes : most of them bad imitations of Gap, Zara (yes Zara imitations with price tags which looks real but if you look well are fake) and low quality. Salesperson seem very bored and do not speak english well. I have been to... 更多
