Where to Buy Electronics in Saigon


It’s always better to have a good to-pack list for Vietnam, but sometimes you can’t avoid forgetting something. Though if that turns out to be the all-important: electronics, then it’s time to look for reliable places to buy electronics in Saigon. Here we’ve chosen the best ones for you.

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
  • For secondhand devices, test all the functions to make sure they’re working properly.
  • 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.
  • Don’t expect to get cheaper goods in Vietnam, except for electronic parts, products here are more expensive than in Western countries due to import taxes.

Top Places to Buy Electronics in Saigon

Dien May Xanh

Dien May Xanh also offers good household appliances

Thanks to a strong online shopping service and a wide variety of products, Dien May Xanh has become a household name when it comes to appliances in general.

A brother of Dien May Xanh is The Gioi Di Dong which specializes more in electronics, especially phones. They’re quick to stock up new releases, and you can even buy SIM cards and phone cards here.

Nhat Tao Market is a hidden gem for engineering tourism

None of the places to buy electronics in Saigon can beat Nhat Tao Market when it comes to hobby electronics. All enthusiasts go here for supplies that can’t be easily found anywhere else: LED strips, cellphone repair tools, multimeters... and a lot of used phones. Most sellers don’t know English but all goods are usually on display so you can take what you want and ask for the price. Bargaining isn’t needed here as the prices are set.

Address: Nhat Tao Electronics Market (near Nhat Tao Street - Ly Thuong Kiet Street intersection)

Another option for those who hate crowded places is a shop near Nhat Tao Market called Hshop. It takes only 2 minutes to walk there from the market, but you’ll find a myriad of hobby electronics, a laser cutting service, and knowledgeable, English-speaking staff.

Address: A3 Kiosk, Nhat Tao Mall, 479 Vinh Vien Street, District 10 (near Vinh Vien Street - Ly Thuong Kiet Street intersection)
