Westerners surely go well with conical hats

Non La (Conical hat) attracts curiousity of many foreigners because it is a part of Asian culture (Which is always considered as a mysterious land to Westerners). Every Westerners who tried to wear conical hat all had great photos to show off with friends but the others are still skeptic that whether they look weird with this triangle in shape stuff or not?

Like many other traditional costumes of Vietnam, Non La comes from a legend related to the history of agriculture growing in Vietnam. The story is about a giant woman from the sky who has protected humankind from a deluge of rain. She wore a hat made of four round shaped leaves to guard against all the rain. After the Goddess was gone, Vietnamese built a temple to commemorate her as the Rain-shielding Goddess. Many people admit that Non La looks interesting but they still are suspicious that would Westerners fit with this Asian stuff? Below are something which will encourage you to try to wear Non La, at least to take fun photos:

Nón Lá may not be as commonly used anymore in the daily lives of Vietnamese from the urban parts of the county nowadays. But the conical hat strongly remains a symbol of Vietnam and is still popular across the country. For the past thousands of years until today, Nón Lá is very much an integral part of Vietnamese life. If anyone happens to come across a white Nón Lá at any point, it will unmistakably symbolize the Vietnamese charm, elegance and romance.
