By no doubt, the Ao dai embody the femininity and charm of the Vietnamese women, while the appeal and functionality of the Nón Lá creates a beautiful harmony of the entire ensemble, leaving a strong impression of gracefulness and romance to any tourist who visits the country. In recognition of the hat’s distinct shape, Nón Lá earned its common name, “Vietnamese conical hat”. Non La is a symbol of Vietnamese’ charm and romance. It is a traditional symbol of Vietnamese people without age, sex or racial distinctions.

Nón Lá is essential for the people to protect themselves from heat which could last for months. Non la is made out of such simple and available materials as palm leaves, bark of Moc tree and bamboo. Non la is abundantly sold and there are many traditional villages where tourists can get high quality conical hats. 

The image of a young lady wearing Non la and Ao dai is a beautiful symbol of Vietnam.
