    Along the Street in Mui Ne Village: Pearls

    by easterntrekker Written Feb 15, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As soon as we got to town I noticed pearls were being sold everywhere. Black ,Pink and White. They are pretty inexpensive so I questioned if they are real .Honestly I'm still not sure . When I got back home I compared them to the fresh water pearls being sold here from China and I really can't see a difference. Most are not strung ( knotted between)but the young women I met at a little outside shop agreed to string 4 sets for me .She did a wonderfuljob and everyone I gave them to are thrilled!!

    There will be many streets vendors and some on the beach that will try to sell you something, fruits, drinks, food and jewelry. I usually try to avoid those as they might not leave you alone until you buy something, but sometimes I actually rather buy from them as that might help them also to make a living.

    What to buy: Pearls, we bought few.

    OK, I added it here just to be sure you get the right one, do not leave this place without this excellent fish sauce, this will improve your Vietnamese cooking to the level that you will (almost) not miss anymore the Vietnamese holiday food :)

    There is a kind of small mall with a Supermarket in town where you can check and buy all the special local food items you might not find when back at home or they will be much more expensive.

    What to buy: All kind of local food items, but most important, buy the local fish sauce, this region is famous for that and you will get the best quality here.

    Fashion tailor Lan Lâp: First class shirts

    by Dr.Styranki Written Feb 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    English or French languages are not so higly cultivated in this small tailor boutique. Service is otherwise very polite and cheerful. The best practice is to bring your old Jeremyn Street shirt and trousers as an example and they make full copies or even bespoke better versions just in one day.

    First you take the measures and then you will get the figures how much material is needed. With these measures you will go to any neigborhood draper's and select the cloth you like. "Winter thickness" suits better for non tropic climate back to home.

    Prices bring the extra joy to the day, best investment for ages.

    What to buy: Any bespoke clothing you like to have.
