Halloween is here!

So where do you get costumes in Saigon? Well actually, if you drive around the city, there are lots around. There’s Hanah along Pasteur St. But I wanted to visit A2 Shop which was highly recommended by Dani.

So one rainy afternoon, my son and I visited A2 Shop at 107A Truong Dinh St. in District 3. photo moggy_zps58c24896.jpg

Photo grabbed from Dani (I couldn’t have taken a photo because it was raining cats and bats!). photo 20131017_161540_zpsac9a28f4.jpg

My son was wowed with the choices!

    This shop has moved to 104 Tran Hung Dao. I visited the shop today and was dissapointed. overpriced costumes, not enough sizes, and they were all made of thick fabric, which is really not a good choice to wear in HCMC. You can find cheaper options right around the corner from Lotteria. shop next to 91 Nguyen Thai Hoc. good luck.
