Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong - souvenirs?

Jump to last reply

We are NOT buyers (other than tchotchkes)-- both of us actually love to window shop more than the actually buying. However, the thread on Yixing teapots got me to thinking. In Egypt we bought papyruses and love the reminder of our trip hanging on our walls. I have a beautiful ceramic plate from Antibes (every time I use it it reminds of the motorcycle mishap I had that day, an otherwise great day!). I have an urn that I bought in Athens in 1972 (broken now, but since it's a "genuine antiquity" it just adds to the charm :-) ).

So, besides the Yixing teapots in Hong Kong, what would be special souvenirs to bring home from Vietnam, Cambodia and Hong Kong? I prefer things that hang on the wall or can be put on a shelf, as opposed to clothing, for example.
