A very nice place to walk and do shopping. Beware of some sellers price things overpriced for foreigners. I found an item which was 12 times higher than the usual market price. Don't expect anyone to understand even numbers in English.
One of the places in Hanoi you must stay to enjoy the lively evening , it's close to all the tourist attractions. You get a shuttle to halong bay very easily in this area. And it is lit AF.
The streets are Very crowded, noisy, with scooters running everywhere. It's good for shopping but you have to haggle a lot. Half any price you're being told then start negotiating. lots of street food and fresh fruits available. Nice immersion into the vietnamese culture
It’s ok to walk around here, some nice shops and tour agents. But it’s nothing special. Good to go see, but don’t expect a super romantic, scenic or pretty town. It’s busy, loud, hot and smelly.
A lively place in Hanoi where people come for shopping and enjoyment. Street food, local souvenirs can be found here that you can enjoy eating, shopping and make a bargaining. Moreover, there are a lot of street show too.
Sweet Chaos !! MY best description of the Hanoi, Vietnam Old Quarter is #SweetChaos as the streets are busy busy, traffic going in ALL directions, yet the people are so sweet. Delicious food, plenty to explore - be careful though - I came for 1 week, still here 8 weeks later! Love Hanoi and the old quarter!! Come see for yourself!
A great place for shopping, dining and relaxing while indulging in local Vietnamese cuisine and culture. The streets can be very crowded and loud from all the honking but the real charm is the old architecture and the vendors selling a huge array of products ranging from coffee to souvenir to counterfeit bags and t-shirts to imitation jewelry to toys and a lot more. The park and the lake in the middle of the area provides a great place to take a break if you get tired of walking. Most of the vendors are gonna sell the products at a high price so trying to bargain would be a great idea. The streets are filled with hotels and tour providers so make sure to visit a few of them to get the best deal.
The Old quarter is a must to check out while in Hanoi. They have plenty of authentic Vietnamese food, shops, etc. the area by the lake is pretty touristy but it’s a nice afternoon activity. Try not to get run over by a motorcycle!
Very busy. Alot of scooter traffic. Some good shops. Due to activity on sidewalk, most people have to walk in the street with the traffic. Good luck
Great part of Hanoi bustling streets with shops and bars and places to eat on every square metre! A real experience and the weekend market is very busy with some good bargains to be found too .
Nice quarter in Hanoi. Full of tourism and backpacker as well. I recommend going on weekend since the area next to the lake it’s gonna be closed to ALL traffic and it’s very beautiful. During night on weekends there’s gonna be also a night market on the street
It is the best place to visit in Hanoi. Popular among tourists as well as locals. Full of hotels, restaurants, shops, travel agencies, bars, massage parlors. Best place to buy souvenir, eat street food to experience the city culture. Nightlife in Hanoi Old Quarter is really enjoyable, partly because everything is inexpensive.
The Bia Hoi in the evenings is an adventure in itself. Just watch out for the ubiquitous touts (never ride in a pedicab or buy one of the tiny donuts from the many peddlers on the street, as these are well worn scams in Hanoi). The architectural chaos is a sight to behold, and there are wonderful food offerings in this part of the city.
It is a very historical place with a lot o f options for shopping. You will find south asian and central asian restaurants. In the center of quarter you will see tall buildings and you can enjoy coffee at roof top.
Best base for backpackers. All main sights are within walking distance and it's full of hostels that have plenty of space if you need a place to crash. Prices are also very affordable. The french style in architecture creates a very special athmosphere.
Old quarter is quick to visit.(one day is enough, walkable distance from railway street to the cathedral, the lake, the prison and still time in the evening for the market and long bien bridge) Walking around the lake is nice especially that when we went there they didn't allow the cars to go around. Saint Joseph's cathedral was closed both time we went there and no light during the evening. Finally corner beer was so so, it's famous for the 5000 dong beer but while listed on the menu they say it's sold out and ask you to pay for a more expensive beer (20000dong or more). Also the food is more expensive and less good than in the rest of Hanoi.
Something just not right when a tourist takes off a breathing mask to smoke a cigarette... If earplugs weren't dangerous to wear, they'd be a necessity. A big change happening here.
You have to love the hustle bustle of the streets in order to enjoy it. It's noisy, messy, dirty, but magical, beautiful in its ugliness, and charming. Personally I loved it!
Old Quarter is classic place to visit in Hanoi. Full of people, motors bike, food vendors, artists, visitors and locals. The Old Quarter area is closed for any motorized vehicle on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sundays.The absence of vehicle make the experience more vivid. By sipping a tea, drinking a beer near the lake is unique experience. Hanoi is full of youth that use the Old Quarter venue for relaxing, sing in groups like karaoke style, kids jumping and adults having fun. If you are visiting Hanoi, the Old Quarter and their surrounded must be at your list of things to do.
One of my favorite old town city centers. On the weekends it's vehicle free, pedestrian only, not many people trying to bother you or sell something, very safe, family atmosphere, local live music, many food options, very bright and with the lake it's just an added bonus. Well connected to many other parts of the city, and typical place for travelers and locals to mingle. Close to plenty of hotels and hostels to suit any budget.
