Tax Department Store

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Don’t let the name Tax Department Store put you off going here. This multi storied shopping mall is an older style mall and is sometimes referred to as the Russian Market. It’s a great place to go for electronics, perfume, clothing and souvenirs. If you need a new cell phone or memory card for your camera, then this is the place. Much darker than its glossy new counterpart, the Vincom Center, this one has a comfortable slipper type appeal to me. You’ll get hassled a little more, especially around the souvenir section but they lose interest pretty quickly. There’s a reasonably well stocked supermarket on the second floor The Highland Coffee on the top floor has excellent views down onto the crazy HCMC traffic. The view is similar to the Rex Rooftop Bar opposite but considerably cheaper. I recommend you stop awhile and marvel. Location: Corner of Nguyen Hue and Le Loi
