This is a busy. Night market with all the usual items to purchase, such as clothes, bags, hats, souvenirs and so on. Stall owners are respectful and don't hassle you.

A must. The streets are closed to most traffic, the odd motorbike gets through so be careful. The street food is excellent , live music lots of people make it a very exciting attraction. Happens Friday night through to saturday in the Old Quarter of Hanoi.

The Hanoi Night Market only opens on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is just your typical night market but it is always jam packed full of people, either trying to find a cheap bargain or trying to sell their wares.

I'm not sure what I was expecting with these markets but I definitely did not get it. Throughout other parts of Asia the night markets are definitely worth visiting but in Hanoi the only benefit was the ability to walk down the streets without cars or scooters in the way. Put bluntly, it is all the same crap being sold... More

There are about 10,000 clothing/jewellry/shoe stalls selling the identical items. Sometimes you might see an fruit seller but that is what the main night market street offers. Go to the smaller streets and find some artists, hotpot street restaurants and more original art shops. Watch out for the thieves.

Hanoi Night Market is worth a visit but it's nothing spectacular. It is about 3kms long and an interesting night activity but we didn't buy anything and it didn't look like many people around us were either. It's easy to get around but annoying that bikes are still allowed to go across horizontal streets in between the stalls. An experience... More

Several streets are blocked off for pedestrian-only access. That in itself makes it worth visiting! But there were crowds at the night market when we visited. There are masses of stalls and even more masses of people. Most looked to be local. Nothing there that we were tempted to buy, but it was worth looking at. Heading home to our... More

Decent prices. Vendors friendlier than at oter places. Crowded with locals as well as tourists. Sunglasses and tshirts for a good price. Some stalls have fixed prices. Goods much the same as elsewehere. Worth checking out if you enjoy the markets but can be quite crowded.

Lots of street food, little shops for souvenirs and great place for people watching! Loved the little greeting cards with cut out pop ups. Very unique!

To me it was overrated. The Night Market is filled with mostly fake Nike sneakers and slightly defective branded clothing, mostly in tiny sizes. I bought a few things anyway.
