Where to Shop in Hue

The hat has been around almost as long as the country and is worn by men and women everywhere. The lighter the hat is the more elegant the look. In Hue especially, the hat makers insert poems into the weaves and the poem can only be seen when the hat is held up to the sunlight, making it even more special.
