This is a review of my personal experience and only my opinion. After a great trip to Vietnam I was interested in purchasing a T-shirt. I found Papaya online but the website is not easy to navigate or informative about their products. I found a shirt that was not sold out, and ordered. I generally wear size M or sometimes L if the shirt is small, so I ordered L. Approximately a week after my purchase, I was emailed that the shirt actually isn't in stock, and would I like a refund or to wait for it? I was told it would be sent within the month. 5 weeks later it was shipped. Upon receipt of the shirt, I immediately noticed how small it was. I couldn't even get it on. I emailed the company and they told me that I would need to ship the shirt back to them and upon receiving it, they would send a bigger shirt, but I would have to pay the shipping on that as well. Normally they offer free shipping on orders. So 6 weeks after ordering the shirt, I received a shirt much smaller than any shirt I have seen at that size, and then would need to pay twice for shipping. I looked into the cost of this and it was $20 for me to ship. Because I didn't want to spend $65 for a t-shirt that would probably come 3 months after I orginally ordered it, I asked for a refund. They again said I needed to ship the shirt back and they would partially refund me. I could spend $45 to receive $19 credit. No thank you.

Eventually they stopped responding to my emails, but this was expected given the level of customer service they were providing thus far. Since then I found a site redbubble, which offers a greater selection of shirts and far superior customer service. I would recommend them if you are looking to get a shirt relating to Vietnam.

I would not shop here again. Hopefully I can save somebody else the hassle of dealing with this company.

Bought a shirt and came back for more.

We purchased a fun(ny) t-shirt for one of our friends only to return for a shirt for myself. Their designs might not be everyone's cup of tea but they do have some really good ones in the mix. My personal favorite is my bamboo fiber long sleeve shirt. If I have the chance I will be buying more from them, they are extremely comfortable!

T-shirt shopping
Nov 2016 • Couples
If you're a t-shirt enthusiast like myself and want something a little nicer and longer lasting to remember the trip by that's what's available in the markets this is a great option. T-shirts cost 330000vnd but you do notice the difference in quality. T-shirts include tin-tin, Vietnamese flag, Captain America and many more

Quirky T-shirts, nice local souvenir that u can wear comfortably
Jun 2015 • Friends
Went with colleagues to this shop twice. First trip she bought a quirky T-shirt with funny local slogans. She went back hotel and wanted to go again on 2nd night to buy another T-shirt. Material was soft and quality fairly good, though quite ex in HCM. If u really need to get a VN souvenir and disliked cheap T-shirts quality in Ben Thahn market, some place u can consider to browse at.

Only found the small shop
Aug 2015 • Couples
The posted photos show a larger shop, but we only found a tiny shop with a very small, limited selection. The sales staff was not very helpful, despite the tiny store and only one customer. I don't mind paying more for quality, but didn't think this store "was all that." Don't need attitude from salespeople if I'm paying a premium and made the effort to find this out of the way shop, and I would expect a bit better selection.

Original design for a fair price
Jan 2015
There's only one address left in HCM city (nr 171). The French owner - a graphic designer - is a very nice guy that invests the earned money in Vietnam. Poor familiesh from Hoi An makes the nice shopping bags in paper and can now live in better conditions (one of the example he cited). He has his own local manufacturing shop in Vietnam and the t-shirts are very qualitative and, of course, original.

Love the T-shirts

Papaya sells quirky T-shirts and other accessories of very good quality. The store believes in recycling. The shopping bags make great gifts!

Great quality but very expensive for Vietnam
Dec 2014 • Couples
We ended up getting a few shirts through Vietnamese from Papaya
Mainly because of the quality and originality.
There are heaps if 'copy's' of their designs out there but the material is less than par.
Quite expensive for Vietnam but still cheaper than at home

Its just okay.
After visiting the really funky and cool Papaya in Siem Reap, Cambodia I had high expectations for the HCM store. Similar designs but didn't have many accessories. Mainly T-shirts sold in this store.
