On the main road bach dang, Fahasa is a great bookshop to visit. To escape the heat, it is worthwhile just to duck your head in to see what is available and also to enjoy their air conditoning! They have an EXTENSIVE range of vietnamese books, some english books, lots of stationary (and i meant lots!), and some toys and accessories which I found to be overpriced. There is a section where kids can paint sculptures, which is excellent to kill time and have kids enjoyed themselves - for me, my partner had fond childhood memories of painting these sculptures so for the 33k it cost me to get her a sculpture to paint, keeping thr missus happy, kill time and enjoy air cond, it was worth every dong! They also accept credit cards which is a plus but downside they do not have complimentary wifi >< hence I had to write this after!
