Though not quite the same since a devastating fire in 1994, this famous market is nevertheless a landmark trading post.

Every corner and every street around Đồng Cuan Market are picture perfect for photographing Hanoi and Vietnamese in their daily lifestyle. In my opinion, new enterprises with westernise culture and concept should not be given permits to operate here.

Big indoor market in the old quarter - nothing spectacular. A variety of different stores ranging from fake watches, kitchen magnets to clothes, shoes and jewelry.
