Baguettes, beaches, boats, bicycles, …. We had plenty of them all.
And a special mention for Bat Trang, the ceramic village that had plenty of us. The goods were so pretty and the prices obscenely cheap that we ended up buying bags and bags. Our driver, Hai, used to joke that he would drop us there and come back later with 3 lorries! When I went with Aparna, the only thing that put an end to her shopping was a massive thunderstorm that started smashing stuff all around us! And if buying ceramics wasn’t enough, we always HAD to stop at the little stalls by the roadside, selling flavourful baby guavas, and get a few kilos of those.
