Located in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, between the four popular streets Lê Lợi – Đồng Khởi - Lê Thánh Tôn – Nguyễn Huệ, Vincom Center is the new model and design of high-end shopping centers in Vietnam. It has gathered a large number of well-known brands such as Hermes, Christian Dior, Versace, Ralph Lauren, Zegna, Omega, IWC, Montblanc, Panerai, 7 for All Mankind, Diesel, Sisley, Tommy Hilfiger, Banana Republic, Tumi T-tech, Mango, DKNY, Promod, Oasis, Blanco, Hugo Boss and Chopard.
Built in colonial French style, this place is actually a very beautiful white palace with marvelous architectural design. The food court in the basement is a great place to visit especially if you're looking for a quick bite when shopping. There is a wide variety of foods, therefore you can enjoy many kinds of cuisines from traditional Vietnamese food to international ones. The price for food is reasonable; you can spend only 35,000đ for a bowl of phở.
It is suitable for those who love walking, window shopping and avoiding the hot sun in HCMC. Personally I love to visit this place more than Parkson or Diamond plaza since it's new and mostly have a great variety of choices for both shopping and pleasure seeking purposes.
Vincom Center is mainly a shopping mall and office building, but it is also home to luxury apartments on the top floors. It is divided into two separate buildings; one modern with glass walls, one in tradiotional French style. Located next to each other near the Saigon Opera House.
