Tet next year is on Feb 16. Do you have idea if Hanoi night market, Bia Hoi Corner, and Dong Xuan Market are open on 17th and 18th? I accidentally booked a ticket during Tet :-/ I am afraid that everything will be closed during this period

Hi, You should spend your time in Ta Hien street and somes famous streets in Hanoi Old quarter. I cannot make sure Dong Xuan market will be opened at that time. But you will enjoy the special atmosphere of Hanoi in traditional Holiday. happy travels

Had bad experience at Ho Chi Minh City Mar 06. Was later advised by Trip advisor citizens that I should always call to book a taxi. Not to flag one down. I am going to Hanoi soon, is this applicable to Hanoi? Even during day time,eg. after shopping at Dong Xuan market, i should call the cab company for a cab? Are there additional booking charges?

Hi Gesline, It doesn't matter if you call or flag one down as long as it's from a reputable company. In Hanoi, the hotel manager told me to use the taxi (04) 820 20 20. Don't use any taxi with no name or a small wording "Tourist Taxi" or something stuck on their white vehicle. I was cheated by this one. If you have to use these people, negotiate the fare. Never use meter as their meter run too fast. I thought somewhere in the Old Quarter they said 7 US Dollars to airport. I used...More
Markets and shopping (9 Replies)
Hi guys Any idea whether the Hom market, Buoi Market and Dong Xuan market are worth visiting? or should i stick to the tried and tested Old quarter shopping area?

If you enjoy looking round markets they're all worth visiting, but the goods on sale are mostly aimed at local people. Cho Hom is very good for fabrics, but for souvenir and other shopping you're more likely to find what you are looking for in the small shops in the Old Quarter and Cathedral District.
