Tailors and shoe makers
20.08.2008 30 °C
We spent a week in Hoi An and loved it. It's a very beautiful and reasonably peaceful place (for Vietnam that is) and the best part is the ridiculously cheap clothes and shoes that can be made!
I tried to not go to overboard but with the cheap prices and talent of the tailors (you can show them anything from a magazine and they will copy it exactly for a pittance of the price) I couldn't help myself. At this time we were tossing up between living in Dubai or the UK (two different extremes of Weather) so I decided to get two good jackets/winter coats made just in case.
Chris had two suits made and several shirts and I had skirts and dresses made for teaching in Dubai. Wealso had leather shoes made (Chris 1 wendy 6!!) Mine were very cheap at around $8 a pair.
While we waited for our clothes and shoes to be made we wandered around the beautiful 'old city' and along the riverside.
We watched a show with traditional dancing and music.
We were very pleased with our clothes and shoes and loved everyday spent in Hoi An!
