This is one of the old streets in the Old quarter. This street sells mainly fans and wood carved stamps. Interesting to see.

This is one of many streets in the Old quarter. I found a number of shops selling handicrafts and customised wood stamps. Its a small street and you can cover this on your tour of the old quarter.

A good find was a little shop on Hang Quat St. I sat on a tiny plastic stool and chatted with father & son as they hand carved wooden stamps. I wanted to buy handfuls of them but I hardly ever make cards now. I settled in the end for an intricately carved miniature diorama. It shows the modern cyclos... More

Went to this street with the intention of buying a decorative fan - did not find any for sale in any of the shops. Woodwork stores were popular however.

An naturally artistic street, fans of all kinds and colors a displayed by the stores here make it a panoramic picture of colors and art of arrangement. We bought 10 hand fans here as souvenirs. Hope our family would like them!
