There was no need to bargain really. Prices were excellent, where I paid US$35 for a silk ao dai. I would have paid much more in Boston's Chinatown for a comparable outfit. It was a perfect souvenir from Vietnam. Contrary to popular belief, it can look quite lovely on Western figures.
The store stocks silk pajamas, jackets, and dresses in addition to ao dai. You can also have your clothing custom-made and embroidered.
