Factory Rejected Goods

by apenan

Where can I get the factory rejected goods like jeans, shirts, shoes and many others?
Thank you.

Re: Factory Rejected Goods

by mikeinvietnam

There are some back streets and alleys in Tan Binh District near the large Tan Binh Market. But they usually have many product selections at certain times of the year coinciding with the large factory seasonal production runs. I used to stop in the area once a month or so to do some shopping. But I was only lucky to hit the large stocks two or three times. Just wasn't worth the time to keep going back so I stopped. So, everything depends on the time you are in the city. And then you need to know where the scattered shops offering such goods are located. I hope someone else can give better detail.

I remember stopping at a number of shops only to find out the stock was used, donated American clothing for sale.

THERE IS AN INDOOR MARKET LOCATED IN CENTRAL HO CHI MINH CITY DOWN THE STREET FROM THE Q BAR. ITS DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM THE MAIN BUS STATION. AND 100 YARDS TO THE LEFT OF THE TAI HAI LONG HOTEL AND SPA. AT NIGHT TIME ON THE STREETS BESIDE THE INDOOR MARKET THEY HAVE AN OUTDOOR MARKET THAT SELLS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.

La Anda, certainly I enjoy my stay in Saigon (I prefer to use the old name). I fell in love instantly with Vietnamese coffee.
I also took some good photos.
Thanks, La Anda. I will go back to Saigon again and with you around, I am sure I will be able to take more good photos.
Cheers!

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

Small Bike Carries Complete Family

by Mikebb

The first thing you will notice in HCMC is the road traffic, particularly the motor bike.

Once you get used to the noise, the horn beeping and the roar of motors you will then take notice of the participants and notice the multiple passengers. Regularly you will see 4 persons on a bike, usually a family of 2 adults and 2 children. In fact my wife claims see saw a young mother on the back of a bike feeding her 3 month old child during a peak traffic period.

We were on the lookout for 5 on a bike but did not see it whilst we were in the city.

De Tham/Pham Ngu Lao

by Blatherwick

The De Tham and Pham Ngu Lao area are a couple of streets in Saigon that make up the "backpacker ghetto". If you've been to Khaosan Road in Bangkok then this is the Vietnamese equivalent. This place has all the amenities that you need as a traveller. There are cheap places to sleep, cheap internet places, plenty of decent travel agencies, and places to buy toiletries. Small souvenir shops line the other side of the street and sell silk paintings of traditional Vietnam scenes, postcards, newspapers and burned DVDs of the latest movies. It is also a decent place to find Western food if Asian food doesn't suit your palate. Of course this means that it is done Vietnamese style so don't be surprised if the cheese on your burger is cheese spread or if your shake is missing ice cream.

Friendly Vietnamese Drivers

by bpacker

I know you're really rubbing your eyes when you see this. What, those speed demons are friendly? Well they are, to a certain extent.
The next time you're in VN, observe the drivers carefully. They seem to be waving to another driver occasionally.
You'd probably think that those drivers know one another but no, they don't . Those waves mean that a traffic police is cruising along and that the oncoming driver better slow down...
A 'O' shaped wave means that the common enemy is on a motorbike, another wave conveys another meaning so on and so forth.
Driving penalties are very severe in Vietnam and it could cost the driver's rice bowl, thus the strange stockmarket-like waves.

Basic survival gear

by Fondest_Memories

Summer clothes is recommended for HCM city. The country is pretty hot year round, with exception of the north. The north can get pretty chilly during winter months (10-15C or 25-30F). White shoes are not recommended, your shoes will look a year old by 1 day. Cargo pants that convert into shorts are probably the best type of pants you can pack with you when travelling through this city.

You Little Tunnel Rat!

by Aidy_p

The title was not meant to be anything derogatory, but the Viet Congs were much feared by the Amercian soldiers as they did not know where the Viets would be and after a swift attack, where they'd dissappear to.

This was a massive problem for the Amercians as the Viet Cong was just at the backyard of Saigon. Located at Cu Chi (Pronounced as Ku Chee), the tunnels stretched for kilometres and the thing the makes me shake my head in amazement was the fact that the Viet Congs were such a hardy group of people.

I walked through the tunnel for just a couple of minutes and I was already wondering when I'd be out of it. Can you imagine the Vietnamese people living in the tunnel structure for years?

Worth taking a walk, I mean crawl through the tunnel. You might like to fit into the little hole as well. I have a size 32 waist and it just fitted nicely with not much room for maneuvouring.
