Commonly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City was a former capital of Vietnam. The myriad of souvenirs one is exposed to in this city is mindblowing. One can choose something unique from a fascinating variety of souvenirs to gift the loved ones back home.


Vietnam produces some of the best coffee beans in the world. It’s also the world’s second-largest exporters of coffee. You can find some nicely-wrapped packages of coffee at places such as Highlands Coffee, which lies in the proximity of properties such as Somerset Ho Chi Minh City that qualify as an alternative to Ho Chi Minh hotel options in the area.

Ao Dai

Among the top-ranking souvenirs in Vietnam is the Ao Dai, a traditional national garment traditionally worn by both men and women. It is a type of vibrant tunic that is split from both sides. Usually worn over trousers, these figure-hugging garments come in vibrant patterns and colours. It is the ideal souvenir to gift someone.


The elaborate work of the Vietnamese ceramics springs from an array of cultural handicrafts, including embroidery, calligraphy, painting, and many others. These make for ideal keepsakes at any household. Why not buy an intricately-detailed tea set to gift that friend who loves all things classy! Have your pick at places like Duy Tan – Saigon Artisan, which are away from District one.

Motor-Bike Fashion Jacket

Fashionable cover-ups to wear when riding motorbikes are on fleek for Vietnamese women. The elegantly threaded, vibrant fashion jackets are what you should buy in Ho Chi Minh City as a gift to someone who has a good sense of fashion.
