Description:

Introduction:

The Old Quarter has numerous streets crammed with shops but those of particular interest are on Hang Gai and Hang Bong where there are a number of tailors and silk shops. The area close to Hoan Kiem Lake has some excellent shops including along Hai Ba Trung Street. Dong Xuan Market on Dong Xuan Street is Hanoi's largest wholesale and retail centre and anything and everything can be found there.
Opening times:

Shopping malls are beginning to arrive in Hanoi with the Trang Tien Plaza at VinCom City Towers at 191 Ba Trieu. Hand-embroidered tablecloths and napkins are very popular. The hill tribes of the Central Highlands and the north of the country now sell colourful woven bags and clothing in the city. Good souvenirs are marble figurines and vases, ceramics from Bat Trang village, silk paintings and hand-painted greetings cards. Shops are generally open seven days a week from early morning until late evening.
