| 5 min read

Southeast Asia has undergone tremendous economic changes in the last 60 years. The region is booming and so is the shopping culture. Apart from online shops and e-commerce, traditional markets with many stalls and luxurious and opulent malls are gaining more popularity every day. In this article, we look at Vietnam, where tourists like them because of the price difference compared to their countries (and to be honest - AC, at times), and young people because of fancy brands and selfie opportunities. Let’s not forget cafés and entertainment options such as karaoke or cinema. You will notice that many places on our list are even owned by the same company - take Vincom for example. The conglomerate behind it builds new malls every year, runs amusement parks, schools, and hospitals, manufactures cars - we could go on. Whether it is bustling Saigon or historical Hanoi, with this list you will be ready. Without further ado, find out about the best shopping malls in Vietnam here.

The first place on our list is located in Việt Trì - Phú Thọ province, 80 kilometres (50 miles) from Hanoi, the country’s capital. Vincom Plaza here offers a food store of the same brand, called Vinmart, playground for kids, restaurants, cinema, and several shops. It is quite big and the set of stairs quite impressive. And let’s not forget cafés, after all, Vietnam is the second-largest producer of coffee. This beautiful building with white pillars and big windows has it all. And if you register for a Vingroup loyalty programme, with every purchase you collect points to use for discounts. Just ask Vinmart staff.

Located in the southeast tropical province of Bien Hoa, and in its largest city Đồng Nai, is another plaza of the same brand. And it is the biggest one in the city. They have many things in common with the previous one: supermarket, cinema, cosmetics, shopping options with Asian and Western brands, food court, book store. The staff is always very polite and the mall is kept clean. One extra add-on: there is a skating rink; therefore it can get more crowded on the weekends.

One could say, another city, another Vincom. This time in Cần Thơ, that you might have heard about because of Mekong waterways, floating markets, and friendly people. It is the fourth-largest city in the country. This mall, centrally located, is praised for good cinema and entertainment options, even for families with kids. After all, over 60% of Vietnamese are in their 30s! It is smaller than Saigon’s malls, but cosy, with nice coffee shops, international cuisine, as well as expensive “brand” outlets.

Hoi An and Da Nang are tourist hot spots of South Central Vietnam. The fifth-largest city of Vietnam and a former military airbase, Danang now attracts beach lovers and people that flock the highly Instagrammable Golden Bridge, supported by giant hands. Therefore this mall caters to locals, expats, and tourists, as well. The building looks more humble then previous ones but there is all they might need. It is more pricey, though, and with several Parksons closing in Vietnam, let’s see what the future holds for it.
