    Where to Shop in Hue

    Shopping in Hue lets you experience the local lifestyle and learn about the city’s unique history and culture. Home to local markets, art galleries and tailor shops, Hue is arguably one of the best cities in Vietnam to purchase authentic handicrafts. Popular items include silk paintings, antiques, and lacquerware.
     
    About a 10-minute drive from Hue Imperial City are several non-profit organisations and fair-trade outlets along Vo Thi Sau Street. Not only do they offer quality goods made by improvised locals, visitors can also learn how to made simple handicrafts in workshops as mementos of their holiday in Hue. Do note that some sellers, especially in Dong Ba and Tay Loc Market, aren’t fluent in English, but don’t let that deter you from bargaining for the lowest price. Check out our list of where to shop in Hue.
