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... More

our luggage was delayed in transit so we went there hoping to find a swimming costume for my 9 year old daughter and some basic essentials. What a depressing experience. It was neither charming like a market or soulless but useful like a shopping mall. We came away with nothing, there were only a few stalls selling out dated clothes... More

We found that Saigon Square 1 was the best shopping area for us! It was cheap, had air con and the vendors didn't hassle you. Overall made a nice change and came back with lots of very good and cheap purchases!!

Not for from Ben thanh markets. This place is 2 levels and air conditioned. Clothes and handbags here are cheaper than the hot Ben Thanh markets. You can try on clothes as sizes are different in asia. Brands such as Tommy Adidas Diesel etc are available. Shoes in Asia seem to be expensive. Still batter here. Do clothes shopping here... More

Small shopping complex with 2 floors. Mostly selling bags such as crumple and north face. One north face bag is about 30,000 vnd to 65,000 vnd ... Some stores allow you to bargain, some wont ... basically they selling the same things, as a whole.

This is a market meant mainly for tourist like others in the East. It is busy, noisy and if you feel like bargaining a lot you might find some deals on "brand name" copies and some souvenirs.

We went to one of these squares and it was terrible, full of very average fashion and a few souvenirs...don't waste your time here, we found the Ben Thanh markets were much better...more variety and great atmosphere.

This square is great with a nice view of the city hall. They are doing major renovations which makes it difficult to access currently but is worth a visit if you can. The street is large which really makes you think of Paris when you walk on it, you can really feel the French influence.
