as you know ah, because i'm here for work so not really go shopping much ah. the few times i did, i went to those 2. russian market lesser tourists, they sell many winter wear, some bags, quite a lot of sports apparel also. i bought stuff there before.

saigon square is a lot more touristy but i think if you're up for fake luxury goods you can go there. many stores taken over by korean lol. u can hear them mostly speaking in korean to entice korean shoppers.

Ben thanh is pretty basic. i prefer to go in the day for more options compared to at night. my friend bought the northface backpack here. sorry i can't recall how much cos quite long ago. but cheaper than the cheapest fake in carousell.

i work in the sports apparel industry so actually i feel russian market one give me the feeling like it's quite legit. they even have proper hangtags of the original brands. feels like some of them may be smuggled out of factories or they have blueprints to the construction and i'm sure the local suppliers of the fabrics/accessories also sell to these copy factories.

smuggling out of the factories is quite common. security they hire also damn useless one, worker exit the factory they just do a very sloppy effort of checking the bike storage. open and close then go.

I see. Thanks for the tip... I'm not exactly going for fake luxury goods like LV etc... but original copy for nikes (if you count that as luxury goods)... so long it's dri fit and good quality material, i don't really care...

just looking for comfort wear... went royal sporting house last night, 1 t shirt easily 39.90 upwards... hard to swallow if i'm buying 2-4 tops...

For North Face backpacks the going rate is in the S$30s for a 30 liter bag, if I remember correctly. They can be quite firm on their pricing. At least this was my experience from about 18 months back.

The quality isn’t that great... but it’s a bag and it works.
