Essentials

Vinmart in Landmark 4, Landmark 6, Park 2, Park 4, Park 7, Central 2: small convenience store but quite effective. You can buy almost any thing you need for a short stay, from amenities (shampoo, body wash) to food (meat, vegetable, fruits, snacks), drinks (soft drinks & some beer)

Shopping

If you want to shop a wider range of goods, Coop Mart is the local supermarket chain that everyone loves. Price is generally cheaper and food is much fresher than Vinmart. If you want to buy some local sweets for souvenirs, this is also a good place. Pearl Plaza is only 3mins by Uber/taxi or 10mins walking from Vinhomes. Just be careful if you walk as the street is very quite crowded here.

Drinks & Nightlife

The best rooftop bar in terms of view. Splendid view, chill open air atmosphere, fancy decor. They have happy hour everyday from 6 to 8.30pm, ~7$ a drink. Dress code is quite strict, no flip flop, no shorts. Book a table in advance as it can be crowded in the weekend.

The 2nd best rooftop bar but my favorite one, it is in the top floor of a 5* hotel. They have a pool next to the bar, pretty cool (but you can't swim..). Music is good. View is decent. Drinks are delicious. Service is superb. I love everything about this place.

If you travel as a group and each has different taste, head to Yummy Yummy food court and let everyone order what they want to eat. The first thing you need to do here is head to Receptionist and deposit some money to Yummy Card, and use that card to pay for food. After finish eating, go back to Receptionist and get the unused amount of money back. Menu is diversified: Pho, hot pot, chicken rice, pizza, ramen etc. It also has a very nice view looking over the busy street of Saigon - quite rare for a food court as it's usually placed in basement floor. Price is average, ~ 50,000 VND (2.5$) for rice, ~90,000 VND (4.5$) for hot pot. Pearl Plaza is only 3mins by Uber/taxi or 10mins walking from
