Recommendation by Lemi
Tourists on a tight schedule don’t have to go all the way down to Hoi An for a handmade keepsake. The nation’s capital has its own Silk Street—Hàng Gai! Keep an eye out for some traditional dresses, called the áo dài. It’s the quintessential Vietnamese garb that will turn heads wherever you strut. Sweep the racks and bring home a massive haul from the various stores that line the street. Nab a dainty stitched masterpiece from Tan My Embroidery. Then, revamp your wardrobe with ready-to-wear items, silk ties, and embroidered accessories from Le Minh Silk. The shop also has a fabulous raw fabric selection that you can save for future use!
