The Best Shopping in Vietnam

List View
Map View
Vietnam's street markets are the beating heart of its small villages and big cities, where locals work, shop for vegetables (and outboard motors and live animals), and eat. Beyond the often noisy and chaotic street stalls and night markets, be sure and also visit the craft cooperatives, tailor shops, and elegant design stores. Whether you shop high or low, you can find excellent souvenirs of your visit here.
