There are lots of shops that sell lacquer in Saigon, but Saigon Crafts at 74 Dong Khoi Street (not far from Union Square shopping centre at 171 Dong Khoi Street), is in my mind one of the very best--beautiful, tasteful, exquisitely finished pieces ranging from trays to jewelry.

The entire central area of HCMC is now a construction site, with many hotels and shops inaccessible due to the hoardings which encircle the main shopping streets of Dong Khoi, Nguyen Hue, Le Loi etc. This is mainly due to the uncontrolled construction works being carried out in connection with a new mass transit system. Little thought is being given... More
