Is the quality good at An Dong Plaza Shopping Mall?
The phrase “You get what you pay” is right when you go shopping in Ho Chi Minh City as well as Vietnam. Products at An Dong Plaza are sold at different prices. They can have high, low or medium quality. Most of them have no brand. If you find a bag with logo of LV or Gucci, it is fake. I have bought a “Gucci bag” at An Dong Plaza and it remains in good condition after 2 years. The fashion products and accessories are made in Vietnam, China, Thailand, Korea, etc. I would like to recommend to buy made-in-Vietnam items. Most handicrafts and souvenirs are made by Vietnamese people. Prices are good if you are a good dealer.
Do I need to bargain?
At some shopping centers including Takashimaya – Saigon Centre, Diamond Plaza, Vincom Center Landmark 81, customers shop at stores with fixed prices. At Ben Thanh Market, An Dong Market, Tan Binh Market and shopping centers including Saigon Square 1 and An Dong Plaza, customers should bargain to buy the items at good prices. In fact, the prices at the markets, Saigon Square 1 and An Dong Plaza are cheap. However, sellers usually offer you high asking prices. If you accept the prices they offer, they can get high profit. If you bargain and win the deal, you own items at cheap prices.
Restaurants and services
After walking and shopping at the stores, visitors can enjoy great foods and drinks in the 10,546 m2 area of restaurants and services from 4th to 7th floors. Fast foods are great choices for foreigners who are not familiar with Asian foods. Chinese restaurants in the building are good places to enjoy the rich and elegant Cholon cuisine. On these floors, visitors can also use services at spas and nursery room.
An Dong Plaza Shopping Mall is equipped with modern escalators and air-conditioning system. There is a large number of security guards standing at many corners or the mall to ensure there is no thief and pickpocket. There are some ATMs at the mall so that visitors can withdraw cash in VND. It is not sure that the vendors accept credit cards and USD cash so that customers should prepare cash in VND.
