Top 5: Vietnamese souvenir ideas
The best part about any holiday is all the fun stuff you bring back and memories that last forever. So, if you’re going to Vietnam, make sure you’re back home with at least one of these Top 5 Vietnamese souvenir ideas:
1. Nón Lá
Traditionally made out of bamboo, Nón Lá is a conical hat that is considered to be a fashion piece, worn by the locals to protect themselves from sunlight and rain. You will see many tourists wearing this around Vietnam… A difficult one to pack in your luggage, but cool nonetheless.
2. Water Puppet
Although puppets may seem to be very common, water puppets are very unique to the culture of the people of Vietnam. Water puppetry there, is considered to be a form of art. If you happen to watch a show, make sure you support the local artists by buying one as a souvenir or present.
3. Silk Scarves
In silk shops in Hoi An, the scarves are made out of pure silk and eco-friendly dyes, by hand. A thoughtful present for someone you have been thinking about during your trip to beautiful Hoi An.
If you learn how to use them in Vietnam, why not take them home? So get back a few pairs of chopsticks to eat you ramen noodles at home, while remembering your holiday in Vietnam.
Not only is it a great idea to buy a handcrafted Lantern from Vietnam (also known as a Chinese Lantern), but how amazing would it be if you made one yourself? So, book a workshop and learn how to make one and it back home!
If you’re in Vietnam with your S. O., incorporate some couple-y things to do to keep the sparks flying between the two of you!
