Let's travel around the world with Yuko!
In this column, Yuko will introduce to you the national costumes from all over the world. Then the Vietnam costumes will be introduced in the sixth programme.

This time let's learn about a national costume named Ao Dai. Speaking of Vietnam, the first thing emerges in our mind must be Ao Dai.
Then Yuko and Ron tried on such kind of Ao Dai!

The "Ao" in "Ao Dai" means "tops", and "Dai" means "long".
Ao Dai is dressed as a Vietnamese formal wear, and now is a standard for formal occasion such as weddings and so on.
The largest feature of Ao Dai is the high slit on both sides of the waist, which highlights the beauty of women. And the pants wearing on bottom are convenient for activities.

Ao Dai originated from Chinese cheongsam, but the unique fitting design is actually influenced by the European design.
In Vietnam, white Ao Dai is usually used for high school women uniforms, and we can also find the uniforms of Ao Dai for airline and hotel.
Beside the Ao Dai for women, we also can find the Ao Dai designed for men, but it is said that men only wear Ao Dai during the weddings.

What is Yuko's feeling when dressing such Vietnamese national costume?

The high school uniforms are so beautiful, which is really enviable.
People are talking that the Ao Dai is the most beautiful clothes worn by women, while the women wearing Ao Dai are indeed very moving.

In big cities such as Ho Chi Minh City, you can customize Ao Dai, and also can rent Ao Dai to take photos and enjoy the Vietnamese customs.
So please be sure to experience it!
