A foodie, a sucker for coffee and a wanderlust. Born and raised in Vietnam, I have traveled to some awesome places in Vietnam. I also spent some years in Finland (Helsinki, Mikkeli), and nearly one year in Japan (Tokyo). During the time staying in Europe and Japan, I had chances to visit many cities around Europe and Japan.

Although an amusement park may sound not relevant to shopping, Vinpearl has its own shopping street, perfect for tourists who want to make purchases before returning home. Taking inspiration from Hoi An Old Town, this shopping street has a pretty, quaint look, and I really enjoy how it looks at night especially. You will find shops offering a range of products: from jewelry and casual wear to local handicrafts and souvenirs. The prices however, are higher than what you will find on the mainland, so I recommend grabbing something last minute here rather than stocking up on all your souvenir needs. If you prefer a shopping experience that doesn't require bargaining, this place is also for you.
Dam Market is the most iconic, and also the biggest market in Nha Trang. It has hundreds of stalls offering a wide range of farmer's products, fresh food, souvenirs and dried seafood. Many travelers complain about the ridiculously high prices here, and while this can be true, it's still worth a short tour just to see its iconic architecture, and the way local people shop for their everyday cooking ingredients. If you get some inside tips, you can get good bargains here too.
A genuine collection of amazing photographs about Vietnam. The owner of the studio, who is also the photographer, is a very famous in Vietnam. His photos are all black and white, and you will be impressed instantly by the soul captured in every picture.
The Artful Gallery is well worth visiting — perhaps even more than once! The shop is decorated with the products that are on sale, and which look amazing with their chic, vibrant, and whimsical designs. Being Vietnamese, I love that the products have a Vietnamese feel and you can find great one-of-a-kind pieces such as clocks, bags, and mugs. The photos for sale are lively, beautiful portraits of Vietnamese people going about their daily lives, and prices are reasonable for the quality.
Nha Trang Center is a typical Vietnamese shopping mall. Here you will find small shops selling handicrafts, wood carvings, souvenirs, and branded clothing. They also have a supermarket inside.
XQ Hand Embroidery offers unique handmade embroidered items that are quite simply beautiful pieces of artwork. Moreover, watching the embroiderers work is a great experience to appreciate the skill of the local workers and this traditional Vietnamese art form and culture. A gift purchased here will be an exquisite piece to bring home to your loved ones. Delicate pieces of very special art.
Popular among tourists and locals alike for a great night shopping experience, this market has different stalls offering food, souvenirs, handicrafts, craft jewelry, casual wear, and swimwear. After an active day of swimming and water sports, you can have a more laid back night out here, strolling the streets and sampling desserts and other tasty treats as you window-shop.
If you don't want to get sweaty by going through the maze and bustle of the street markets, then this shopping mall is a good option for buying goods such as groceries and casual wear at affordable prices. The handicrafts sold here may not look as appealing as those sold in specialty handicraft stores in the center, however, if you're in a hurry or looking for an affordable deal without needing to bargain, this is your place.
