    Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City as it is termed today will be the veritable cliche -A shopper’s paradise. The main feature of shopping within the funding of Vietnam is that it is tourist oriented, just about everything on offer is meant for consumption through the hordes of visiting tourists. Having a minimum of a fundamental knowledge of bargaining would serve you well because there are many attention grabbing items displayed, from the usual touristy fare to elegant antiques and souvenirs.

    The shops in Ho Chi Minh City or somewhere else in Vietnam are definately not being drab; they are a riot of colour from extensive decorative make an effort to the colorful knick knacks displayed, large is an enticing prospect for tourists.

The most important in the lot may be the Ben Thanh Market, which can be instantly recognized by the large clock tower at the traffic circle. This is a large old school outdoor market with hundreds of narrow alleyways that have store fronts. Because of regular patronage by tourists the marketplace has recently morphed into a tourist attraction, many stalls now sell Vietnam t-shits and counterfeit branded jeans, caps and souvenirs.

    The Night Companies are located almost near the Ben Thanh Information mill usually open after 5.00 pm.
