Located on prime real estate, the largest and most modern shopping malls in Hanoi like Lotte, The Garden, Parkson and IPH are quiet despite many new promotions and discounts.
The Garden shopping centre sells both luxury and budget products. It is located on Me Tri Street, South Tu Liem District, Hanoi. It is considered an ideal destination for people living in Hanoi's western area.
However, the mall was crowded only in the early days. Now it is always quiet, even during the weekend.

On the fifth floor, the cinema is in the same situation. An employee said the cinema is only crowded on weekends and during promotional campaigns.
The deserted scene is similar at Parkson at the intersection of Tay Son and Thai Ha, one of the prime locations in Hanoi.
The stores are quiet despite many promotion campaigns.
Shops on the 3rd to 5th floors specializing in luxury, high-end watches, perfumes and clothes of famous brands are not busy. Previously, Parkson was seen as the place for luxury goods in Hanoi.
Lotte shopping center, on Dao Tan Street, which opened recently, is also deserted.
The shops here have eye-catching designs but they do not have many visitors. A staff said the number of shoppers dropped after the opening day.
Located in Xuan Thuy – the "golden land" in Hanoi's western area - Indochina Plaza Hanoi (IPH) is very quiet.
The prices for goods in this center are not too expensive, but the center does not have many customers.
The Lotte shopping center on Tay Son Road, Dong Da district, Hanoi was crowded only on opening day.
