Top Shops In The Top Town

HCM City highlights 22 shops where tourists can enjoy shopping with quality products and quality service

Among the thousands of shops of all sizes in HCM City, Vietnam's biggest trading and shopping center, there are 22 shops, mostly in downtown Saigon, that have passed a test to be designated shops of the high standard needed in serving tourists. The selection was made by the city government's Department of Tourism.
Last November, a panel worked for a whole month to judge candidates and picked out the 22 best shops. Qualified shops must have good infrastructure, diverse products, reasonable prices and good services.

"We have granted the title to improve service quality and competitiveness of tourism businesses to cater for tourists' shopping demands," says Nguyen Thi Lap Quoc, director of the Department of Tourism, the mastermind of this effort to make tourists feel very satisfied during their trips to the city.

Shoppers can recognize the 22 shops because they display a sign depicting the Lac Bird, a legendary bird in the Vietnamese culture.

The title is effective for two years and will be considered for renewal. HCM City tourism authorities say more shops will be selected following the first 22 shops (see map on the facing page).
