Towards more souvenirs of Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa for tourists

Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa welcomes a large number of tourists every year. To develop souvenirs for tourists, in the coming time, Khanh Hoa Province People's Committee will organize a competition to design gift products for Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa tourism.

One afternoon in mid-September, Jung So Min and her boyfriend, tourists from Korea, visited Ot Hiem souvenir shop (at 30 Nguyen Thien Thuat Street, Nha Trang City). Souvenirs here are arranged quite beautifully, and the staff is quite friendly. After the initial greeting, the store staff let customers freely browse the items. Souvenirs are available at prices so guests can choose things that fit their budget such as traditional Vietnamese conical hats, porcelain products, postcards printed with beautiful Nha Trang landscapes, bamboo, brocade items, etc. With 20,000 VND, visitors can buy a beautiful small postcard printed with the image of Tram Huong Tower, Ponagar Tower... as a gift for relatives. After watching, Jung So Min chose to buy a cute little cyclo to mark her trip to Nha Trang.
