Thuan My: Mac computers

Being a dedicated Mac user for as long as computers could do anything useful, this shop is essential for my sanity. Hardware prices can't compare to Thailand or Singapore, but they are good at diagnostics, repair and maintanence, or if your like me and must have the latest mac whatever the price.

On the street: Zippos

This is not really a shop and probably be put in warnings section. Simple piece of advice: there are no geniune war period Zippos on sale in Vietnam any more, anything that you might be (and probably will be) offered by street vendors and shops will be fake, it might look like the real thing, as some clever boys have taken to buying real Zippos, engraving and burying them in the ground for a month or so.
Just got this from the chief rep of Zippo Vietnam.
