Most of the vendors especially women still uses the traditional conical hat to protect them from the heat of the sun. However, this hat is not only specific to Vietnam as other Asian countries such as Indonesia, China, Cambodia, Malaysia, Korea and the Philippines still uses this kind of hat. In the Philippines, it is usually worn by farmers in the countryside and is locally known or called as “salakot”.
