BURNT TWICE: (Phu Quoc, Vietnam)

Vietnam, like some of its neighbours, has a gift for 'ripping off' household name products. It's ever so tempting to get caught up in this 'grey market' economy, cashing in on luxury products at a fraction of the price…and it's only the corporate rich bods at Versace and co. that are losing out right? We expect budget prices for some fake Ray Ban sunnies, so why should we be so annoyed when the cheap Factor 81 Sunscreen isn't quite the quality sun protector it claims to be? Steeped in our double standards, we expect to get ripped off sunnies, but don't expect to get ripped off with dud lotion. The 'factor 81 protection' should have given us a clue that we'd fry at the beach that day!
