A great non-profit shop with lovely crafts from Vietnam. I especially liked the scarves and bags. Extremely good prices.

Rather lack-lustre shop with traditional tourist-fodder. Not worth a special trip if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. I had doubt that some of the stuff was even made in Vietnam

There are two shops, a few doors away from each other. Both are very near to The Temple of Literature. One has mainly items of clothing, such as scarves, dresses and handbags. Don't forget to go upstairs and, along the balcony, into a fourth room....More

One of the best places to buy local handmade items coming from all over the country and quite reasonably priced. No way to bargain, but the price/quality ratio is very high, without getting ripped-off. Part of profits go back to local communities, helping a lot...More

If you are looking for authentic craft direct from and supporting Vietnam's diverse ethnic communities this is the (2) shops for you. Visit the art museum, the temple of literature, eat at Koto or Be Be Mieu and it is a day to remember.
