Ho Chi Minh city is fast emerging as one of the most intriguing shopping destinations in Southeast Asia. But shopping here is not represented by gigantic shopping malls, or neon-lighted streets lined with fancy boutiques. Instead, many locals prefer to hunt down trends and bargains in markets which have not succumbed to the temptation of tourists dollars (eliminating Ben Thanh market and Saigon Square from the list).
Vietnam is a well known hub for exported clothes where International brands such as Lascote, Gap, A/X, Levi’s all outsource certain functions of the manufacturing process. Amongst the millions of items produced, there will inevitably be a percentage of that considered to be rejects or x stock. In other cases, certain models which are not popular may be set aside and sold at a significant discount.
