All supermarkets, including Citimart at Vincom City Towers and Hanoi Towers, carry kitchen and dining equipment. There’s a great selection at the Dong Xuan Market in the Old Quarter, with dozens of shops selling all manner of cooking and dining goods. Local goods are extremely inexpensive but, as usual, imported European or American products are marked up with import taxes, and will probably be more expensive than in your home country.

Ham Long street in the Old Quarter has many local shops selling well-priced Bohemian crystal, dinner plates, bowls, and tea and coffee sets, plus local blue pottery that is popular with expats in Vietnam.


This shop has a good selection of European and American pots, pans and kitchen knives and the owner speaks good English.
