“Great shopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Many wonderful stores, no high pressure sales. Bargaining works well here and the prices are great! Unfortunately, I got there about 9 am and many of the shops were still closed. Wish I had more time to shop this street.

“Fabulous shopping street”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

I stumbled on this street and was really surprised at the variety of shops. My best experience was at Tammy Design which offered 4 floors of well curated Vietnamese goods, from linens, lacquerware, horn jewelry, silks, it was all there. Less touristy and more designer in its vibe, I found many things I loved to bring home with me from this store. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. If you want something different from regular touristy offerings, make a bee line here.
Hang Kai Street also has other famous Vietnamese brands like Ipanema bags and Khai Silk near by.
It was a pleasantly surprising area to wonder through - I stumbled on a church, several nice cafes and even a mochi shop in the environs. A final treasure was threetrees diamonds and fine jewelry located at 15 Nha Tho Street, for designer Vietnamese fine jewelry. Pricey but unique.

“Choice, choice, give me choice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

An amazing feature of Ha Noi's old quarter is the sense of order out of mayhem. Each street has a purpose. You will find shop after shop of colourful fabrics, cushions, curtains and fashion materials in one street, turn the corner and find stall after stall of stainless steel, handyman tools,hooks and chains, all vying for the same slice of action. Hang Gai street is right in the middle of this immense market place, selling baskets, matting, ropes and woven products. How they all make a living is amazing, but at least you don't have to search for options!

“Street for shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

This is the famous shopping main area in the old town. Anything you need you can find it here. But the quality may not be the same as anywhere else and it is very cheap and you always need to bargain.
