are in Vietnam....
best tailor shops in Hoi An
Hoi An is a shoppers' heaven where you can find tailor shops everywhere
on the streets. In fact, the tailors are almost similar and most of them
should be fine. However, many tourists do not have good experience and
end up paying for clothing that they will not wear. Please keep in mind
that most recommendations that you get from hotels and restaurants are
based on relationships rather than on the quality of the tailor. And the
highest success rates come from playing it safe - copying clothes that
you really like or customizing clothes found as a sample in the shop
windows. With a new design or more expensive items, try with more
reputable (and often expensive) tailors.
