Normal things you can choose, but resemble will have. Focusing on one of the previous reviews, went to the bench "Vietnamese silk for the Russians. In this shop you can find things to fit Russian size 44-46. Friendly seller, which is unusual for Vietnam, knows Russian, you can bargain with them in their native language. Bought Pajamas for 300 to VND, skirt and tunic cashmere Scarfs all of excellent quality. Photo this store put under review. Phuong linh silk in store prices are fixed, a product of high quality. There are linen, silk and products from other tissues.
