St. Joseph's Cathedral (Vietnamese: Nhà thờ Lớn Hà Nội, Nhà thờ Chính tòa Thánh Giuse; French: Cathédrale Saint-Joseph de Hanoï) is a church on Nha Chung Street in the Hoàn Kiếm District of Hanoi, Vietnam. It is a late 19th-century Gothic Revival (Neo-Gothic style) church that serves as the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Hanoi. The cathedral was named after Joseph, the patron saint of Vietnam.
Construction began in 1886, with the architectural style described as resembling Notre Dame de Paris. The church was one of the first structures built by the French colonial government in Indochina when it opened in December 1886. It is the oldest church in Hanoi.

Easy to get around. Watch out for the traffic. Great food and fun. Beautiful lake.

Full of old traditional and new things to discover, buy, see, taste and smell, to get inspired and feel the old Hanoi and its artisans, creators and old architecture, busy streets and foods, colorful handicrafts, paintings, clothing, candies, music instruments, medicinal products, altar products and so much more. Have a drink on the street and meet tourists and expats, see a show or listen to live music, dance and go out in bars, Cafes, restaurants... Night markets at weekends and some pedestrian streets then. The old streets are unique and each specialized in some craft or product, which make them interesting and since they're narrow and change direction, it's easy to get lost and get a special feel, which changes depending on the time of day or night, and season. The presence of the lake, trees, birds and the many layers in what we can observe on the buildings give a sense of peace, beauty and cosiness, proper to interesting exchanges and source of inspiration.

Vibrant location with cultural events happening all around you, on each little street. From the local aunties preparing local delicacies to artistically directed events... Great for shopping or just watch the world go by over a lemongrass tea or a coconut milk coffee. Fascinating in any season!

It is as touristy as it gets in Vietnam. But it still is stunning. There is very little motorised traffic and little honking in the Old Quarter. So... Somewhat relaxing and friendly. A few more benches would be nice.

Thats really narrow places with so much people, bars, shops and all those things that You just can imagine! Amazing food, some local food that You dont even know! Woman bring from her own home ready food. Bars with a local oneday beer. Shop and districts some really serious like with bamboo or with metal construction! Super fancy hotels! I really like it just its so narrow that You have to be careful with cars and scooters! Enjoy Hanoi!

Crowded, dirty place, bustling with tourists and locals. The pedestrian alleys need urgent maintenance, as well as the buildings is all area. New buildings erected here and there are no architectural match with the rest of the neighborhood. No street cleaning, and the locals are throwing everything anywhere they please. There is no trash bin in the whole area. Stuff being sold in shops is low quality Chinese items. With a good management, this area could become a tourist icon, but currently it is left in ruin.

This neighborhood is really attractive. There are a lot of street food for you too try. A lot of street vendor sell quality items for cheap price, especially if you try to haggle the price. The neighborhood is hectic and full of life! Some people said that Vietnam is full of scam artist and robber, but I walked at night several times and it was safe. I will probably go there again if I got time.

A lively place with night markets, street performance, hundreds of restaurants of all kinds, and full of tourists. All houses are shops selling different goods and services. The center area is reserved for pedestrian only in weekend evenings. A must go to for those who visit the city.

Old quarter is the part of Hanoi city which exists since imperial time. Consisting of hotels, shops, restaurants, bars, tourist offices and massage parlours is the city’s best places to eat, drink and shop. Street food is available on every street corner. By night the Old Quarter comes alive, there is so much to see and do. Just walk around and enjoy the local life here.
