Exploring Ly Tu Trong Street

It’s no secret that the Vietnamese are on the lean side so it is a bit of a feat to find swimwear that fits my size. Boooo!

If you don’t know it yet, Ly Tu Trong St. in District 1 is popular place for people looking for swimsuits, swim gear and even lingerie. 😛 photo 20130604_145954_zps4ff0901c.jpgWell-known swimsuit shop, Aquamarine has a branch in Ly Tu Trong St.

These boutiques are the best places to go to because they have fitting rooms! LOL. Don’t buy at bazaars shops that don’t allow you to try suits! Most likely you’d end up not wearing ’em! 😛
