5 places in Saigon to shop till you drop

Local shopping at wallet-friendly prices

No matter which country you’re in, there’s always going to be dull, conventional shopping malls that don’t differ much from the ones you find back home. It’s time for a change of pace. How would you like to see what an authentic local Vietnamese market looks like? It has all sorts of offerings from clothes to fruits, and is a great place to do some shameless haggling. Curated by PARKROYAL Picks, your personal travel insider, here are some recommendations for a different shopping experience in Saigon.

1. Pham Van Hai Local Market

Address: Pham Van Hai street, Tan Binh District
Opening Hours:
6:00am to 6.00pm (Daily)

This place is only a five-minute walk from the hotel. Discover the local rhythm of daily life, especially in the morning when most housewives head to the market for some grocery shopping. There’s a large selection of clothing, shoes, and other fashion accessories with reasonable price tags, although you may have to bargain a little at times. For the ideal souvenir, bring home a bundle of fresh seasonal Vietnamese fruits.

3. Le Cong Kieu Antique Street

Address: Le Cong Kieu street, District 1
Opening Hours:
8:00am to 10:00pm

Nowhere in Saigon will you find as many shops that offer the ancient items as there are on Le Cong Kieu Antique Street. This small street is very close to Ben Thanh Market, but you won’t find the same hustle and bustle of the city here. What you will find are ceramics, wood, metal and glass antiques that have stood the test of time.

4. Binh Tay Market

Address: 57 Thap Muoi Street, District 6
Opening Hours:
8:00am to 5:00pm

Located at the heart of Saigon’s Chinatown, Binh Tay market is the second most famous market in the city (the most famous being Ben Thanh market). Some tourists prefer Binh Tay market to Ben Thanh market because the prices are cheaper and the vendors are more friendly. Like a one-stop shop where you can find all sorts of household items, food, fruits and souvenirs, the market also boasts a small courtyard where you can take a breather from the market’s tightly packed stalls and alleys.

5. Saigon Square Shopping Center

Address: 77 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia street, District 1
Opening Hours:
8:00am to 10:00pm

If you are seeking a place where you can find fashionable clothes and reasonably priced shoes, Saigon Square is the place to be. Like a local market, the mall is cramped with many stores, but its air-conditioning makes shopping there a much more comfortable affair. If you’ve got your eye on something, chances are, there’ll be more than one store offering the same item. Simply shop around, and compare the prices for the best deal.
