Where are the Shopping Centers and Markets in Saigon ?

saigonFirst, a little piece of advice : If during your trip, you are also going to visit Bangkok in Thailand which is just 1 hour flight from Saigon, then you better do all your shopping in Bangkok. It is superior to Saigon in any aspect : variety, prices and fun. You can see what I wrote about the shopping in Bangkok.
Now, regarding the shopping in Saigon. Look at the following map, click to enlarge :
