Ok so the wares at the night market are your typical flea market offering. But the atmosphere is very fun. Prices seem to start a little higher than what you'll be asked during the day in the Hanoi Old Quarter but sellers are happy to bargain. The main selling point for this night market is that they close off the... More

This is quite a big night market with about 3 - 4 blocks of streets lined with many stalls selling all types of items. The night market operates on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Stalls start setting up at 7pm and the road is closed to traffic for the night market to be set up. However, do watch out for... More

The night market, which runs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from 7pm to 11pm, was one of the bright sparks for my family during our stay in Hanoi. The stuff sold there are not as junky as some described them to be. A little touristy... but IMHO it's way better than Dong Xuan Market which is too cramped and... More

There is a lot of repetition along the long line of stalls in the Hanoi Night Market, but there are also some nice buys to be found amongst the clutter. The atmosphere in the whole was good and it was pleasant enough to stroll around. The whole area around the night market is scattered with small bars and food stalls... More

Recently visited the markets on Sunday night and was great to see the typical hustle and bargaining taking place in the vast amounts of stalls. However, recently coming from Ho Chi Minh and Hoi An the quality of product is much poorer and even though the price maybe a little lower, these markets have made fakes that are very tacky... More

We took a walk through the market while recently in Hanoi. It is your typical market found in Asia full of atmosphere and, of course, an infinite number of stalls selling souvenirs, copy clothes, and numerous other wares. My advice is if you're going to go to the market then go hungry so you can check out the food! We... More

still worthwhile to stroll through it and just to observe other people haggling and bargaining for the same-same fake watches, clothes or other useless nick-nack. Or just sit down in one of the street food stalls, enjouy a cold Tiger or a feww bites and enjoy the scenery. I don't quite understand some of the negative ratings mentioning the pick... More

The place is generally clean. The night market is not one compact place though. It is a long stretch of stalls along a few streets in Hanoi. Poor in geography, I only remember treading a short street, crossing to the other side, walking straight a narrow street, turning left, turning right, crossing again, and taking a cab back to the...

All that is said in the other reviews re the lack of traffic etc. But the stalls are nearly all cheap average quality clothing, bags, sunglasses, fake watches etc aimed at the local buyers and Vietnamese tourists. The saving grace are the lack of traffic and the many and interesting street food stalls and the plentiful cheap beer. Street side... More

The night market is open on weekend nights. We went on a Saturday night. The vendors have stalls set up in the street, traffic is prohibited and a cadre of police make sure the motor bike riders keep off the streets and the vendors adhere to the rules. The streets are packed with tourists and locals. The vendors sell mostly... More
