About Shopping Guide In Vietnam
No vacation is complete without shopping, especially at a foreign destination. It is a customary thing to go shopping in the iconic places and buy souvenirs and other things to take back home. Vietnam is not an exception. Vietnam shopping ranges from the vegetable and flower with sellers in their trademark Vietnamese hat, to vibrant market stalls with all sorts of things under the sky, to sky-high shopping malls as well.
Here are some of the best Vietnam shopping sites where one should visit before the trip ends.
1. Saigon Centre, Ho Chi Minh City

2. Ben Thanh Market, Ho Chi Minh City
Ben Thanh Market in Ho Chi Minh City is perhaps one of the most visited shopping places in Vietnam.

The one drawback of this market is that the prices cannot be bargained. But the things to buy in Vietnam are quite reasonable, to begin with.
3. Cai Rang Floating Market
With such an extensive delta region, Vietnam had to have a floating market. Located in the Mekong Delta down south, the floating market of Cai Rang is a great experience to have. It is not the regular Vietnam market shopping, and the boats here mostly sell vegetables, fruits, and seafood. But to hire a boat and meander through the numerous floating vendors is as authentic as Vietnam can get. Moreover, there are vendors selling original Vietnamese pho breakfast here, which is a lovely way to start the day.
4. Hoi An Central Market
On the banks of Thu Bon River, the central market of Hoi An is on every Vietnam shopping guide. The market is very special in its slice of life ambiance and staggering diversity.
