They all have many stores, but we’ve only listed some popular destinations. You can see the rest by using their websites (preferably with the help of a Vietnamese-speaking friend) or typing “name of the store + district …” on Google.

Tips on Buying Electronics in Saigon

  • It is best to have a picture of what you want to save time, and it’ll help with the language barrier
  • Look for the product’s details and price on various platforms
  • Check the warranty policy and documentation carefully
  • For smaller shops, sellers usually use Vietnamese currency for transactions, so prepare some cash
  • Test all the functions for secondhand devices to ensure they’re working correctly.
  • You can bring broken electronics to bigger stores (like The Gioi Di Dong) to get them serviced or fixed for a reasonable fee. Inserting the SIM card service is free.
  • You should not expect to get cheaper goods in Vietnam, except for electronic parts. Due to import taxes, products here are more expensive than in Western countries.
