The newest center for bargains in Ho Chi Minh City, the Russian Market, like its name implies, caters to visitors from Russia. Boasting the largest stock of discounted winter gear in Saigon, you can renew your wardrobe of ski jackets and accessories at a fraction of the cost back home. The merchandise is disorganized and may require some digging around, but it’s well worth it. Larger shoe sizes are also available.
In addition to cold-weather wear, the Russian Market on Ben Chuong Duong in Saigon's District 1 sells sportswear, jackets, casual wear, shoes, souvenirs, suitcases and more. Pick up a women's t-shirt for about VND80,000. Children's clothing should cost around VND50,000 and up. Trousers and dresses are priced at about VND150,000, and high-quality jackets sell for about VND950,000. Note that HCMC's Russian Market stocks larger-sized clothing.
