Hue Shopping

Shopping in Hue is typically characterized by the Vietnamese local market tradition, where the artisanship and culture offered is more than usually found elsewhere. The merchandise sold is Hue is similar to those available in other places in Vietnam, but what sets shopping in Hue apart from shopping in the rest of the country is that the highly regarded cultural souvenirs are more prominent here. Thus, it is the best place to collect souvenirs. Hue conical hats (Non) are famous throughout Vietnam and are an important collector's item for anyone who visits the city.

Of these Hue conical hats, those with a poetic inscription that can only be read when held up to a light are the most sought after ones. In fact, it is considered a great gesture to buy one of these and gifting it to a Vietnamese friend or your host for the trip.

The shoppers can browse through the wares of the various shops that are located in the main streets of Tran Hung Dao, Phan Dang Luu, Le Loi and Mai Thuc Loan. A number of fashion shops, souvenir shops and galleries are concentrated on these large streets in Hue City.
