Hang Quat, the street that formerly sold silk and feather fans, now stuns the visitor by its brilliantly colored funeral and festival flags and religious objects and clothing Quat means fans, and that is of course what was traditionally made on this street, from bamboo, paper or palm leaves.

Went to this street with the intention of buying a decorative fan - did not find any for sale in any of the shops. Woodwork stores were popular however.

An naturally artistic street, fans of all kinds and colors a displayed by the stores here make it a panoramic picture of colors and art of arrangement. We bought 10 hand fans here as souvenirs. Hope our family would like them!

Hang Quat street is a about two blocks north-east of the Hoen Kiem Lake and another great street area in the old quarter for exploring. There are many interesting shops, more local consumable and household items in this area. We really enjoyed the little shops selling the big buddha statues and miniature alter pieces. Here you can also find plenty... More
