Hana Vietnam – A wonderful shop of handmade bags

On a bright and beautiful day yesterday, I decided to go shopping for a bag. I always wanted to check this shop out. It is very famous among the Japanese ladies. Hana is the name. Located in District 2, inside Hem 47 at Quoc Huong street. It is near the clinic where I go to every day actually.

When I arrived at the address, I wasn’t sure if they were opened. The gate was closed, also the door inside. It is just like a normal house with some rattans outside. I saw the opening hour and they should be open until 5 pm (they only close on Sundays), so I rang the bell and someone came out of the house. A very nice Vietnamese lady.

I stepped in into the house an amazed by their products! They are very beautiful and nicely made. There are many kinds of rattan plait bag in the shop. I looked around and found the one I like. Then I asked for her permission to take photos of the product to put them on my blog. I feel like more people should know more about this shop.

They made all of the products by themselves. She also mentioned that her mom still helps to make the bags! Some of the bags also produced by their relatives in Mekong area.

The price is fixed. I tried to bargain but no luck 😦 There was someone buying for wholesale as well. She gave different prices for wholesale. Hmm, maybe I should try selling it as well!

Rattan Plait Bag with Tassel

I bought one bag for myself and another one for a birthday present. Luckily I had enough cash because they only accept cash payment. Prepare your cash before you visit this place! You might end up with more bags than you’ve had planned because they are so beautiful. It is good to buy as a souvenir from Saigon as well!

Chocomin – Dog themed chocolate pieces

I stumbled upon this chocolate shop on basement floor of Saigon Center mall. They are selling chocolate with a cute dog picture on the cover. And it’s actually has the shape of the dog on the chocolate too! Very cute. There are dark chocolate and white chocolate part on each chocolate piece. Depending on which type of dog, you get more white chocolate or more dark chocolate.

They have 2 type of packages, 68 pieces (800k vnd or around USD35) and 36 pieces (380k vnd or about USD17). I’m sure they are selling per piece as well. This can be a cute gift for a dog lover! Or for the incoming Tet (Vietnamese New Year) celebration.

Would you buy this chocolate? Let me know what do you think in the comment.

Ciao!
