Before Saigon Centre’s reopening this year, I’ve only visited it twice (in 7 years). But looks like I’d be visiting it more often now with it’s new and improved shopping experience.
It felt like going to Shangri-la in Manila.
I liked that they opened with almost all their shops already operational. And as expected from articles I’ve read, there are a number of new shops and restaurants.
In the Takashimaya side, high end clothes and bags are displayed unencumbered. In Crescent Mall, Runway is behind closed glass doors — which actually discourage shoppers to check it out. If it’s caged, it must be way beyond your budget. So why bother going in, right?
Had to take a photo of Under Armour to show hubby, as he has been looking for an outlet for a while.
I got excited by Annam Gourmet Market. Bought some tea here.
Finally, TWG in Vietnam.
But it was the macarons, not the tea, that excited me. 😛
There were 7 flavors available today.
Because my friend wanted to buy something from Minh Long, we went in.
Only their best stuff is here.
Dropped by Lladro next door and was in awe with their products!
A 34MVND chandelier. It’s beautiful IRL.
In Saigon Centre, the restaurants are all in Level 5. The usual suspects are there like Thai Express and Pepper Lunch. But there’s a place called Asian Corner where you can go in and several Asian restaurants share the same space.
It’s actually pretty nice inside although, according to my friend, it can really get crowded during the weekend.
Lots of space inside so I wonder what it’s like during the weekends. 😛
If you’re craving for Japanese cuisine, there’s another area with several Japanese restaurants sharing the same space too —
Thinking of coming back for some carbs here though in Pizza Logic but there are a couple more of pizza places here.
But yeah, they’ve got McDonald’s too. 😛
And if you’re hoping for some shopping time minus your kids, you can drop them off at Tini World or Little Einsteins.
So there, just a quick look see of Saigon Centre + Takashimaya. If you’re going to shop for something, it’s definitely a place to visit. No cinemas here though so it’ll be mainly for shopping and eating. 🙂
