I ended up buying 2 toddlers quilts from Mekong Quilts nearly 3 years ago and gave these... More

Had read a few other reviews about this organisation and then found they were less then two block from where we were staying so off I went. I went there with no real expectation of what I was going to find or buy, but I was very pleasantly surprised with what I found. I must have spent at lease 40... More

I was amazed by the selection of quilts here and the quality - you can tell the detail put into each quilt. Compared to what you would pay outside Vietnam - it is inexpensive on top of purchasing for a good cause. Highly recommended.

We are three teachers at the American International School in Ho Chi Minh City and we cannot say enough good things about Mekong Creations! We buy all of our gifts for family and friends from here, as the shops are filled with quality things that are not only beautiful but are also well-made. You can even commission furniture and quilts... More

A wonderful way to give back to the community that gave us a great holiday. Mekong Quilts and Mekong Creations have opened a new store full of beautiful quilts from cot size to king size, from traditional designs to contempory designs. The King size weighed 5kg and managed to squish into my suitcase, although they will post for you. There... More

We walked a long way to get to this shop. It is near the backpacker district which is a really interesting area. Some of the craziest power lines in Saigon! We were really hot when we arrived so the staff turned on the fans for us. The shop has some really nice bags. I would have loved to take home... More
