What To Buy In Vietnam - What to bring back with you from Vietnam

Vietnam is a beautiful country that has a sad history but is now on the rise and people are travelling to the country and here is a list of things you can purchase to remember the trip you made.



Once you taste some of the finest coffee in Vietnam you are bound to want to purchase some to take back home with you. You will get to taste test these at a coffee shop, hotel breakfast or a luxury apartment. Ho Chi Minh has many different shops that sell some of the finest coffee in Vietnam and you will regret not getting some to bring back home with you.


Ao Dai

A precious and proud possession for ladies in Vietnam as this national outfit has now spread around the world to become a favourite fashion garment for many. While the traditional Ao Dai is a simple and basic dress with a stunning brocade work on the fabric there are now several types of Ao Dai such as hippy ao dai, trendy ao dai or mini ao dai. Before you make the purchase it is best to try them on and decide which style looks best on you.


Silk Products

Silk products are a proud creation in Vietnam as they can produce some of the finest silks in the world. Apart from creating beautiful and soft silk, they have also mastered the art of weaving beautiful patterns into these silks they produce. Silk scarves, dresses, tops, shirts, and ties are a dew of the beautiful crafts they produce in Vietnam


Conical Hat

A conical hat is a perfect accessory to wear when you are exploring the sunny city. You can get your hands on a conical hat at a street market as well as the malls located around Somerset D1mension HCMC. While the hats at the street fairs are rather flimsy and will likely not last longer than a week or so the ones you will find at a mall are bound to last for several years the least.


Pottery and Ceramic

The pottery craft has been handed down through many generations in Vietnam and there is no doubt that this is a tedious and time-consuming craft. While you are able to find these ceramics in several locations around the world you will be able to find genuine traditional Vietnamese pottery in Hanoi. Towards the south of Vietnam, you are able to find high-quality ceramics which are absolutely stunning pieces of art.


Watercolour paintings

At the street markets, some of the shops have artists who are painting at that moment so you will be able to witness the painting coming to life. The amount of detail and patience that goes into the paintings is absolutely mindblowing and it is no surprise that the paintings are quite expensive. Most paintings are related to the sceneries or lifestyle of villagers.



If you did not find anything else on the list appealing to your taste or felt they were too expensive you can purchase Vietnam T-shirts which are available pretty much all over the country. The open-air markets will have a range of designs in a variety of colours and these t-shirts make perfect gifts as well as souvenirs.
