Rain or shine, Saigonese can rest assured that Nguyen Thi Loi, a 67-year-old from Ben Tre Province, will be manning her stall outside Co.opmart in District 3, satisfying sweet tooths with her fresh banh chuoi nuong (Vietnamese grilled banana snack). Loi began hawking banh chuoi nuong on busy street corners in 1977, but illness and old age forced her to permanently park her food cart on the corner of Nguyen Dinh Chieu and Nam Ky Khoi Nghia in District 3 in the late 1990s.

Different from those in many other famous pottery villages across Vietnam, potteries made by the Cham people in Bau Truc Village in south-central Ninh Thuan Province feature a special method: walking around the products to shape them. Located in Ninh Phuoc District, about 10 kilometers from the provincial capital of Phan Rang, Bau Truc is one of the oldest pottery villages in Southeast Asia and the ceramic making technique here has been listed as national intangible cultural heritage, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.
