Description:

No one ever shopping in Saigon can deny that the range of merchandise in Saigon is truly fantastic. Should you can't buy it here, you may not really need it!

Bargaining is considered the most common way to buy things here. Some often relish bargaining, others hate it. Yet, it is not that much complicated if you think of it as a a harmonious Yin-Yang balance. You want the item, and the seller wants your money. Bargaining is simply a search for the Yin-Yang balance between your desire and the seller's. However, should the items have price labels, there is almost no bargaining.

Normally, you will fill your suitcase when shopping in Saigon. If you get hungry during your shopping spree, stop for some finger food or relax in one of the Saigon Restaurants along the city's shopping streets.
