Everyone likes to go on a shopping spree sometimes, and Saigon is definitely one of the best place for this. Through a quick Google search will help you find countless of high end shopping malls (Vincom A and B, and the most recent Takashimaya), we decided to have a look at more local (and affordable) places to buy souvenirs from your trip in Vietnam. We have decided to not include as well the infamous Bến Thành Market in District 1, mostly for its constant haggling and pricing (though it doesn’t match others in terms of convenience). Check out the video and scroll down below for the different markets and streets:
