Where to go?
If you are looking for luxurious designer ware and expensive shopping malls, Hoi An is not really the place to be. However, it offers you something else that is even more brilliant, namely authentic and traditional products of top-notch quality. 

  • Districts
    The best districts to visit on your shopping spree through Hoi An are Hoang Dieu, Hai Ba Trung, Phan Chu Trinh and the riverside. A massive amount of shops can be found in here, but make sure to be resistant against the constant pleas from salespeople asking you to purchase their products. It doesn’t really matter which shop you enter, most products and clothes in Hoi An are of pretty high standard. 
  • Amazing suits and dresses
    However, the very first thing you should do when visiting Hoi An is to get yourself a custom-made suit or dress. You can choose your own fabric, buttons and pattern. The quality is top-notch, and the prices are relatively cheap. 
  • Wonderful products at Hoa Nhap Handicrafts
    Excellent quality, traditional crafts. Whatever you are looking for, from table linen and special teas to jewelry and pottery, they will have it in this store. Want to purchase big items? No worries, they can package it for you and send it wherever in the world you are coming from.

Denise Thanh

Hanoi Like a True Local

Thanh was a perfect guide with a very good English. On the local market she teached us many things about the food and ingredients, explained very interesting things that we never would have realized otherwise. Besides she informed us about typical customs in the way of living. This tour with Thanh was fantastic. We can highly recommend it!

The Most Beautiful Churches in Rome

Had a customise tour with Gabi, a combination of walking like locals tour plus visiting the churches and of course the foodie tour. I had a great time exploring Rome with him. He knows the city very well, gave me clear explanations on every site we visited as well as giving suggestions as to where I can go later after the tour finished. If you want to add more value to your visit in Rome please contact him and you will not regret it.
