[11/07/13]   SOME USEFUL TIPS FOR BARGAINING IN VIETNAM

Do comparative shopping before deciding on what you are willing to pay for an item.

Don't get emotional about items in front of salespeople. Try to look disinterested. You want the salesperson to think you need a discount in order to decide to buy an item.

When asking "How much is this item?," don't show any emotion when you hear the answer. The stated price should be considered the first asking price. Maintain an air of uncertainty about whether you want to purchase the item.

Take your time. Once you learn the price, count to 20, then respond with "Oh, it's that much?" Start looking around at other items in the shop.

Ask your first bargaining question about the "possibility of a discount." When the vendor responds with a lower price, take your time and reply with "Is it possible to do any better on the price?" Anything is possible in Vietnam and Cambodia!

Make a counter offer that is 40 percent of the initial asking price and then keep moving toward an acceptable 20-percent discount. This offer will most likely be rejected, with a 5-percent discount being offered instead. But keep going back and forth until you achieve that 20-percent discount.

Slowly leave the shop if you're not getting the discount you want. This may induce the shopkeeper to yield.

Return to the shop either at the very end of the day or the first of the next day. Timing is important in the final negotiation. The last customer of the day, or the first customer of the day, often has a price advantage.

Buy the item regardless of the final outcome of your negotiations. If it's something you really want, but you're not making progress in bargaining, go ahead and buy it anyway. If you don't, you may regret having passed it up.

Bargain for needs, not greed. Make sure you really want the item before you start bargaining for it. Avoid bargaining just for the sake of getting a bargain.

[11/05/13]   SHOPPING IN VIETNAM

Shopping in Vietnam is a fun and interesting experience, and guarantees good bargains to those who know what to look for. It is true to say that you can find nearly anything in Vietnam. Markets vary from high class shopping malls, supermarkets to bustling open market, boutiques and street stalls.
It is not recommended that you buy imported, famous branded products such as clothing, perfume or electronics in Vietnam as tax makes these items more costly than neighboring countries.
In terms of shopping for tourists, Vietnam is most famous for its handicrafts, war souvenirs, authentic clothing, art, antiques and gems.

Art and Antiques
Vietnam has very strict regulations about exporting real antiques. There are several shops to hunt for art and antiques. Both traditional and modern paintings are a popular item. More sophisticated works are displayed in art galleries, while cheaper mass-produced stuff is touted in souvenir shops and by street vendors. Be careful and check your sources for certificates if they claim to sell you an original or antique piece.

Clothing
Vietnam is emerging as a regional design center and there are some extravagant creations in the boutiques of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Clothing varies greatly from tourist T-shirts to beaded handbags and traditional ao dai (the traditional costume) made to fit your size. Items made from silk are a popular buy, with prices varying depending on the material and tailor. Pre-made traditional dresses are sold in many places. However, it is more recommended to have the dress made to fit your body, which takes more time and slightly more money.
Shoes, slippers and handbags made from traditional materials (silk and bamboo) can also become unique gifts and accessories.
The Vietnamese traditional conical hat, can be found everywhere throughout the country, but hats made in Hue are most famous as they have a poem embroiled on the inside.
Non (conical hats) are favorite items for women in both rainy and sunny times. The best quality ones can be found in the Hue’s area.

Gems and jewelry
Vietnam is rich in gemstones. The jewelry business is also increasing during current years, and sophisticated works are produced by both big businesses and traditional craftsmen. The quality of the gemstones sold is sometimes doubtable, so it is recommended that you buy gems at prestigious locations and be ware with cheap prices.

War souvenirs
Most war souvenirs sold today in Vietnam (for example, Zippo lighters engraved with platoon philosophy) are fake reproductions. Be careful while transporting these items as many airlines do not allow weapons, even fakes to be carried on their planes.

Handicrafts
Other popular handicrafts in Vietnam include lacquer ware, wood-block prints, and oil and watercolor paintings, blinds made from bamboo, reed mats, carpets, and leatherwork.

Tip: Bargaining
Bargaining should be good-natured, smile and don’t get angry or argue. Once the money is accepted, the deal is done. Remember that in Asia, “saving face” is very important. In some cases you will be able to get a 50% discount or more, at other times this may only be 10%.

WOMEN'S TRAVEL TIPS TO TAKE TO HEART

Carry a light
Consider avoiding deserted streets after dark; if you can't, then carry a small, heavy flashlight in your hand. Be careful on dark streets even if you have a companion.

Watch the crowd
Some thieves prefer crowded areas - stay alert in places like bus stations and during street celebrations, where you're likely to be jostled -- thieves use these circumstances to grab your stuff.

Consider your undies
Muggers aren't interested in your bra. Sew pockets into it where you can keep some folded cash.

Don't bring the valuables
Avoid showing jewelry up; you could be injured if a thief yanks a bracelet or a necklace.

Let the bag go
Most experts say not to resist -- let your bag go and then shout aloud for help rather than risk assault.

Consider Your Attire
Dressing well can make a thief think you have mounds of money in your bag. Thus, avoid looking like a rich traveler to avoid curious look. In some developing countries, women's dress can also be a major issue. If traveling in India and Muslim countries, you should respect local dress codes and customs. They aren’t used to seeing women expose their bodies in public spaces. For them dressing up in such a way is brutally deviant from social norms and can easily be misconstrued and ‘invite’ unwelcome groping. Buying local clothing and dress like local people is also helpful to reduce creepy kinds of attention and remember a sexy dress is not suitable for traveling.

[10/30/13]   SEVERAL TIPS FOR TRAVEL ( cont )

CHOOSE YOUR SEATMATE CAREFULLY
If you get the choice of plane seat, always sit far away from: babies, groups of friends who will chat, or women (men tend to need the toilet less often than ladies).

TRAVEL WITH A HOODED COAT
Hooded tops make excellent travel garments. Just slip up your hood to hide from noise and light when you want to sleep on a flight/airport seat/bus.

ALWAYS BRING A SARONG ( OR BIG TOWEL )
They’re light and multifunctional: something to lie on at the beach, a cover for when you’re cold, a towel, a curtain, a skirt, a dress, even an emergency bandage.

LOOK BEFORE LEAVING
Whenever you get up to leave somewhere like at the airport, a café, a bar, especially a safety box in hotel. Turn round and make sure you haven’t left anything behind

BRING A MONEY BELT AND WALLET
The purpose is if you get pickpocketed you can calmly hand over the money belt and carry on your holiday with minimum hassle.

GET A GUIDE
When visiting cultural, religious monuments, always get the guide from local people. It will open your eyes to so much more than if you try and go it alone or just use a guide book.

BE LOYAL
If you’re looking for ways to get a flight upgrade or room upgrade, then join the hotel's or airline’s loyalty programme. Even if it’s the lowest level, you still get rewarded first.

[10/29/13]   SEVERAL VALUED TIPS FOR TRAVEL

PACKLESS
Travelling with just hand-luggage should be your goal. Take less and you’ll travel cheaper (no check-in luggage fees), travel easier & faster (no waiting for your bags).

JIGGLE (just a little bit)
If you're petrified of turbulence during flights, try slightly jiggling your body when you hit some rough air. Sounds a little crazy but your movement will counteract that of the aircraft and you won’t feel the turbulence so much. It really does work!

KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT
If you are in a country where it is unsafe to drink the water, keep your mouth shut in the shower.

CHOOSE THE VEGETARIAN FOOD ON PLANE
Avoid anything too greasy and stodgy that helps the jet lag allegedly

BRING EAR PLUGS / NOISE-CANCELLING HEADPHONE
For the perfect long-haul trip, invest in some good quality noise cancelling headphone or ear plugs to avoid noise like the crying baby, snoring man, or chattering teenagers

BRING AN INTERNET READY DEVICE
If traveling for a long time, take your own device that can pick up wifi, like a smartphone or tablet. It's expensive to use the internet in hotel, or impossible to find any. Yet there is free wifi in places all around the world, and you quickly realise how often you need to tap in to things like bank accounts or travel bookings.

HI EVERYONE, SUCH A HUMOROUS VIDEO TO RELAX, LET'S ENJOY.

[10/28/13]   LIST OF THINGS SHOULD NOT MISS IN HOCHIMINH
• 1 Visit the War Remnants Museum to learn about the Vietnam War and see guns, equipment, and vehicles from the era

• 2 Lose yourself at Ben Thanh Market marveling local handicrafts, textiles, and áo dài. It's a pulsating place, always busy; you'll feel its magic for sure!

• 3 Eat Pho - Vietname Noodles - and drink Vietnamese coffee at any one of the many pop-up cafes. It’s cheap and you just have to point to what you want

• 4 Take a cruise in the Mekong Delta for the timeless scenery of farmers planting rice in their paddies or to see its floating markets and lush green scenery

• 5 Tour Saigon or countryside on the back of a bicycle - it’s a great way to see the city and feel like a local

• 6 Crawl through the Cu Chi tunnels to get a sense of how the Viet Cong used to hide out during the war. Also, fire an AK-47 nearby!
• 7 Learn to cook Vietnamese food

• 8 Play like a kid in Vietnamese style waterpark. Let's face it - we all love them!

• 9 Drink snake and scorpion wine - it’s believed to improve health and virility. Don't worry, the venom is canceled out by the alcohol. Mot, hai, ba, do (one, two, three, cheers)
