TRAVEL AND SHOPPING TO VIETNAM

  So unfortunate, because of not enough 10 person per group, I have to postpone my trip to BEIJING. Then, my friend and her group said, 'Hey, what not we going to Vietnam?, suitable for shopping!'. I just popeyed for a minute.

'What can I get from Vietnam, the place is out of my list!', I crying and a cloud of sorrow in my chest.

'How?', my friend asks for my answer.

'Yeah, yes, I will find an information about the country', I promised my friend.

So, now, I am collecting an information about the country for our trip to VIETNAM.

............................................................................................................................

1.   You want to spend? Try a shopping trip to Ho Chi Minh City's sparkling high-rise malls. 


2.   Shopping opportunities abound at markets such as Dong Xuan and streets such as Hang Gai (silk) and Hang Da (leather).


3.   Of all the many places in the world that I've travelled to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in Vietnam offers the best-value shopping opportunities for made-to-measure clothing, lacquer ware, woodwork, fine cotton goods, machine embroidered and hand embroidered goods, scarves, t-shirts, faux jewelry and shawls.


4.   Walking from the Rex Hotel towards the Ben Thanh Market the streets are lined with shops, stalls, and shopping arcades. There are shoes, silk scarves, baseball caps and t-shirts as far as the eye can see. There are salad servers, lacquer bowls and boxes, embroidered linens, handbags and costume jewelry most at ridiculously low prices. When I was there scarves were as low as $2.00, ditto for the t-shirts (Tiger Beer logos were popular), colorful shawls were $8.00 and nightgowns under $10. Every merchant is ready to bargain and they do it with a smile.

5.   Saigon is full of the usual suspects – namely people willing to snag your purse or backpack. So, always keep your handbag or pack security attached to you and while walking down the street, keep your purse hanging on the inside away from the street and motorbike bandits.

6.   I visited the local covered market with its warren of mini stalls and absolutely no moving air to speak of. I bargained and learned to offer 30% of what I actually was willing to spend on any one item. I thought I was so clever when I bought three t-shirts for $10.00. Back at the hotel I learned that $2.00 per shirt was the going price.
