Chuong Lamp Shop

132 Tran Phu Street
Hoi An
Tel: 84 510 864 158's insider take:

Dozens of stores in Hoi An sell handmade Vietnamese-style silken lanterns, but Mrs. Cuc Chuong's small shop is the best. She fashions strips of bamboo, fabric, tassels, and glue into lampshades in several sizes and shapes: round, banana bud, and mandarin orange. Prices are negotiable, but most shades won't set you back more than $3 or $4. Best of all, they're collapsible, so there's room in your suitcase for more than one.

Open daily 8 am to 8 pm.
