Shopping in Hoi An is changing every season. Edgy fashions that appear to come off the runway in Paris are now being made and sold right in the old town.
Ava'Na is a great example of this changing tide. Located only 20 metres from the famous Japanese Bridge in the Old Town this shop is a MUST see if you are visiting Hoi An.
When I lived in Hoi An from 2006 - 2007 it was SLIM pickin's for cool fashions but how times have changed! My great friend Ava and her business partner Ms. Na are the owners of this shop and all I can say is Ava has STYLE! She's 6 feet tall and wears heels in the rain! I love her.
