  • Vietnamese handicrafts in Halong night market

    Mar 18, 2012

    The night market in the town of Bai Chay is a collection of open air stalls that sell a wide range of traditional Vietnamese souvenirs like laquerware, chopsticks, trinklets etc. The stallholders will quote you the price in US$. You will have to bargain for the price you feel is right for the product. Offer them 50% of the quoted price in VND. If you are not satisfied with the final price offered, move on to the next stall - another stallkeeper could be willing to sell you the item at your price.

    What to buy: Lacquer plated chopsticks: if you are ethnic Chinese, these chopsticks make good souvenirs as you can use them to eat at home. Wooden chopstick containers are also available to hold the chopsticks.
    Vietnamese conical hats: the ubiquitous conical hats (non la) that Vietnamese womenfolk wear. Hang it up on the wall if you don't want to look like a clown wearing it back home
    Vietnamese dolls: dressed in the traditional Vietnamese long dress, the `Ao dai'.
    Ceramic tea sets

    What to pay: The price that you will be quoted for a set of 20 chopsticks will range from $3 - 5 depending on the design.
