Something I enjoy during travels is people watching. I like to observe the current fashion in the country as well.
Just like in Singapore, red seems to be a lucky colour for Tet (the Vietnamese new year). Girls tend to wear identical colours shoes to match their outfits.
We were thrilled to spot an outdoor barber shop. We used to have a travelling barber in the 70’s in Singapore and they used to go from home to home to give you a hair cut – especially for little boys.
I noticed that Vietnamese women tend to like wearing their hair long and straight. They also wear pantyhoses as it’s suitable for the cool weather. In Singapore we would melt if we did that.
