The market is full of stalls selling cheap quality clothes, bags, accessories, belts and souvenier items at the same price as the other regular shops in Old Quarter. There is nothing special that you would miss if you do not visit this place. Also, I was warned by the hotel staff that due to the heavy crowd in the market,... More

Hanoi seems to be full of authentic knock offs and cheap clothes. The people of Hanoi seem to like this. As a tourist it's great to see local people doing what they do (great outfits from promenading couples dressed uo for the night!) But as a westerner the clothes were nowhere near my size (UK 12) as the female frame... More

I live in Hanoi now so I'm used to the crowds, in fact I love being in a crowd. That's what visiting a real market is all about and this one is certainly bustling at it's peak times. What lets this place down is the lack of variety in the stalls.

It's definitely worth coming out for The Night Market on Friday, Saturday night to check out the items on sale. Take in the experience and you never know, you might see a few things that would make perfect souvenirs for your friends and family back home. P.S.Make sure you are aware of your belongings at all times.

whilst having an okay time looking through the many stalls and waking through the pushy crowds I was alerted that my bag had been slashed and my wallet stolen! i went to the police but they did not care! the crowds are so pushy, that if you go make sure you take no valuables and a bag in which you...

Rather crowded and nothing especially interesting. Picked up a little stuff for the kids. It's only open in weekends and closes at 22:30.

The night market offers the same products that you can buy in the Old Quarter during the day. No big surprise. It's good if you have an idea of the 'normal' prices, to negotiate effectively (ex: if you know that a kid's souvenir t-shirt costs around 100.000 VND maximum, when you are approached and offered a t-shirt for 200.000, you...

most of the shops sells similar items and are repeated throughout the night market. not many street food choices at this night market compared to that in HCMC or Taiwan. 5 of the vendors we encountered were not open to price negotiations. not even 10% off. it leaves us wondering if the price quoted in the first place is inflated...

The atmosphere is lively but most of the stalls are selling the same junk you've seen in most of the tourist shops throughout Hanoi. It's a good place for a wander after dinner but I was repeatedly warned about pickpockets, however I saw no evidence of this - then again I am extremely cautious. Don't feel like you've missed something... More
