The most attractive thing about Saigon Square is the low-cost brand name with familiar brands such as Zara, Mango, Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, Levi's, Polo ... This place is also the wholesale spot for many fashion stores in the city. The selling price is flexible, since it is called a market so customers should be bold to bargain the price. For purchase and sale, most items are exchanged within the specified time.
Another special feature that makes Saigon Square attractive to young people is the goods that are constantly updated according to the latest fashion trends. You can easily find here fashionable clothes for both men and women, children and adults. And moreover, the sellers also import big-size outfits for foreign tourists.
The Square, in the form of a market, only sells fashion clothes and goods so unfortunately, you could not find any food court or restaurant here. However, tourists can walk only 3 – 5 minutes to the around streets and dine at some fine restaurant that located just round the corner of the mall such as: Poke Saigon: 42 Ly Tu Trong, Dis 1, HCMC – healthy and vegan food, attractively decorated in a bowl, with a minimal and beautiful restaurant design. Li Bai Restaurant: Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers, Level 2 88 Dong Khoi Street, District 1, HCMC – delicious dimsum in a fancy hotel, good service and professional staff.
