Built in 1889, Dong Xuan Market serves as the biggest covered market in the city. Located in the center of the city's Old Town, this market traces its roots back to a French administration. Though it was destroyed in a fire in 1994, it has since been completely rebuilt. Today it stands as a popular place for local retailers to buy wholesale items and for tourists to explore food and artisanal items. As you walk through the stalls, you will discover local cuisine, fashions, household goods, electronics, and even plants. Using our international travel planner, Hanoi attractions like Dong Xuan Market can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Lots of local products to see but sometimes they require you to purchase in bulk. Items there are not necessarily cheaper than those in the tourist shops at the lake. Pretty hot, not air-conditioned. ...  more »
  • Huge market with everything you might need! However, it is as a greenhouse in there and everything is very close, so we were just quickly inside and look and out again.

He did not sell it to another shop to purchase our HES. Some stores enough to say Thailand have naughty, but don't hand up there, watch out, he will allow us to purchase it here before you buy every time, if no label, ask the price before the price every time but do not hurry to purchase decisions rely on several. To get a price comparison. If the price as he went, but if we don't, then he is not. Good fun episode bargain section that is coffee-the coffee here, very aromatic, so were Viet Nam, plus how to buy a cup of coffee by simply boiling the coffee price, it really is at 20, 000VND, or approximately 30 baht.

  • Don't waste your time. It is for wholesalers. I picked up a pair of shoes and the seller refused to sell them to me.
  • It is so terrible for shopping when you go alone. I also do not like its smell which make me feel being sick.
  • Interesting wholesale market. Great place to come see everyday Hanoi merchants doing businesses and their livelihoods. IMO, much better market to people watch.
  • No one speaks English. People generally have no courtesy. Even when I'm trying to squeeze by in a tight space, many people won't give way. I do say "Excuse me" but of course they don't understand. And things aren't cheap, they probably jacked up the prices because I'm a foreigner.
  • Gives such a good feel of the local market. Wholesale prices for awesome stuff.
