Saigon Centre is a tall building with offices, serviced apartments and a shopping center. The builiding is currently under renovation.
Centrally located in HCMC with three retailing levels, this upscale centre caters to the high end office workers who inhabit the building. It's a great place to buy electronics, clothing and handicrafts. Formerly the tallest building in Vietnam, Saigon Centre's primary attraction today is the vast amount of products available for purchase. Prices are fixed but discounts are available depending on the shops. You will find several boutiques with beautiful souvenirs and gifts, but be warned that the prices are generally on the high side. On the first level, you have several cafés and restaurants.
Saigon Centre was completed in 1996. Today, the building is a landmark on HCMC's main thoroughfare, Le Loi street. The 25-storey skyscraper comprises 11 floors of prime office space, three levels of retail podium, 89 units of serviced apartments and three levels of basement car park. Saigon Centre has won numerous awards and accolades over its years of operation, demonstrating its commitment to deliver high quality services to customers and businesses in Ho Chi Minh City.
