A five-minute walk from Benh Thanh Market, Saigon Square is a two-storey wholesale fashion mall that offers some of the best prices in Ho Chi Minh City. Perfect for bargain hunters, there are seemingly endless aisles of small stalls selling t-shirts, men’s and women’s apparel, shoes, handbags, swimwear, luggage, jewellery, and textiles. While the prices on the tags may be slightly inflated, bargaining is expected, so you should never accept the opening bid. As it’s also fairly easy to see stalls selling similar items; just browse around the shopping mall before settling for an asking price that you’re comfortable with.
