T-shirts bearing Uncle Ho (Ho Chi Minh that is) and the Vietnamese Flag are very popular items with the backpacker's crowd. Plenty of stalls are selling them - everywhere - for cheap. Do bargain. You can get them for as low as 6000dongs or less if you buy more. Check for quality though as the quality does varies. Pull the neck especially and make sure they spring back or you will have a lovely evening gown after a few washes. Usually they are made from Polyester or Nylon, and not cotton. I bought some at some stalls near Ben Thanh and the colour washes off. But some I bought from a shop off Dong Khoi, turned out to be pretty good stuff.

Directions: Try "Nguyet Cung", 213 Dong Khoi. The quality of the T-shirts here are better.
