- You haven't been to Prague very long, before you realize that a lot of the small shops found everywhere are run by hard working Vietnameese people. And also, if you shop for clothes, shoes, bags etc. just 5 minutes away from the tourist centre, you'll find plenty of shops selling quality stuff at reasonable prices. But where does all these goods come from? SAPA. Sapa is a huge market in the outskirts of Prague - in Libus (Prague 4). It is quite easy to get there. First you take the red metro line (C) to Kacerov, and there you catch bus no. 113 and get off at Sidliste Pisnice - just outside the market. You'll find clothes, shoes, bags, and all sorts of various stuff in amounts you can't even begin to imagine, before you've seen it. And at prices which are just as difficult to imagine. As the market is primarily based on wholesale, not everybody will be willing to sell just one piece of clothing. But no problem, as there are hundreds of stalls, and for sure somebody WILL be willing to sell to you. Only when it comes to shoes I have not been able to find a shop where I can choose what I want and only buy one pair. Don't forget to check out the food shops. There are plenty af spices to be had a very low prices and also exotic things - maybe just to look at. For instance chicken feet in bulk. There are plenty of restaurants, of course serving the most genuine Vietnameese meals you can find in Prague. Prepare to spend 4-6 hours - getting there, shopping, eating and getting back.
