Shopping Tips!

The best part of buying a great stuff in Vietnam is lovely, crafted lacquerware besides clothing, painting, silk & linen products. The artistic lacquerware can be found in many stores and souvenir shops in Vietnam as well as you have chances to visit their workshop and observe how people skillfully make those gorgeous handicrafts.

All items can be purchased in US dollars at most places except some of small stores who sell local products, street food, coffee, water and so on. However, you should exchange a small amount of US dollars to local currency ($1 = 22750).
