I am not sure of what Muslim wear is, however, Markets such as the Ben Thanh and Ch Lon sell a lot in the way of fabrics,suitable as wraps.

It will probably be difficult, if not impossible, to find abayas, jilbabs etc. but scarves and shawls that can be worn as hijabs or shaylas are available all over the place.

You'd probably be better off shopping for this sort of clothing in Singapore as I feel sure it would be difficult to find in Vietnam. If you bought fabric in the market, you could possibly get stuff made up.

you can go to Ben Thanh Market for baju kurungs with beads, or the night market (kurung and also abaya with beads).... Or you can shop at Hong Anh Boutiques (at Ly Tu Trong Street and Le Thanh Ton Street).... :) Most retailers in Malaysia got their supply from Hong Anh...

Are you going to Hoi An as well? You can get it made here. Bring an example, pick your fabric and they can copy it exactly.

Muslim wear as in the faith of Islam? In Vietnam their style of dress is totally different to mainstream Islam. Islam makes up only a tiny percentage of the faiths followed in Vietnam. Only 2%.

What I want to say is that Vietnamese Islamic dress is not comparable to mainstream Islam to the extent if your wore that style of dress in an Islamic country, probably you would not be recognised as being Islamic.
