Markets aren’t really my thing. We went through the market on our way to a restaurant. It’s very busy with lots of stalls. Everything imaginable is on sale. In my opinion a lot of it isn’t particularly good but it’s horses for courses.

The night market occupies many streets that have been closed to traffic. I found lots of things there that were cheap but also found that the stallholders were not prepared to really haggle as the base price is already exceptionally low. There are plenty of...More

If you can accept that even if it says Abercombie & Fitch or Nike or Adidas, it is not the original and can bargain like crazy, this is the place. First of all the prices in local currency are crazy. Drop the last 3 zeros...More

The market starts at 7pm and block traffic from using it. The place is converted to be place for many activities. It covers a big area from Hoan Kiem Lake towards the railway track.

At the weekend this street is closed off to traffic and stalls selling all kinds of merchandise are set up. We spent a good hour wandering the length of the market. Haggling is an absolute must. Offer 50% of the asking price to start the...More

The night market in Hanoi is only on the weekend, Friday - Sunday, 7pm-11pm. It’s one long strip of stalls in the middle of the road selling various things. One of the best things to experience in Hanoi.

Coming from BKK I found nothing appealing in this market. Walked around it for 10 minutes and left. If it is your 1st time in SEA give it a go.

I personally love the hustle and bustle of these markets - with the added fun of true Vietnamese bartering. Start bidding at 50% less than they ask for, and you can normally complete with a discount of about 30-40% off their price. Enjoy the bars...More

Yeilou/Keelung to Zhongxiao E. Rd. Sec. 4? (6 Replies)
Is there any bus from Yeilou/Keelung to Zhongxiao E. Rd. Sec. 4? Where to catch the bus and where to alight? Thanks alot!! I am thinking of going to Yeilou follow by Zhongxiao E. Rd. Sec. 4, Xinyi District, Wufenpu and Raohe Night Market on one day and on another day go to Shifen, Jioufen and Keelung. It is bcos i find it too packed to go 4 places in one day hope CC or nutty can advise me on this. Thanks!!

The Yeliou Bus goes via Zhongxiao//Fuxing - Stops opp Exit One,So I would presume it would come back the same way. However since Shihfen is the Destination that is out of the route,You should do Shihfen then Zhongxiao,Xinyi Wufenpu and Raohe. Yeliou, Keelung Jioufen Jinguashi Is a smooth ride and nice flow and more enjoyable.

Hi, 1) Where is Jatujak..? I am looking forward to getting some designer bags... originals that fell off the truck for a cheap price. Hope I get it there. Also, until what time is it open in the afternoon) 2) How far is it from Sukhumvit soi 11 3) I am also planning to go to Poi Pet. Is it in the red light area? As a female should I not go there in the night 4) Also where can I buy nice cheap stylish shoes? 5) Is it worth it for me to go on tours? Luvtatravel_8

Jatujack is open only on weekends and opens around 9am. You can get pretty much anything under the sun there including the designer bags, clothes, shoes and much much more - its the largest outdoor market in the world. Sukhumvit is a 15 to 20 minute taxi ride away from JJ. Poi Pet is on the Thai Cambodia border - did you mean Pat Pong ? This is the red light area of BKK and is safe for you as a female but very male oriented in its entertainment. The tours are a must if you want to...More
