  • This is a massive hangout for locals. It is fun to walk around and see how Vietnamese people have fun. A lot of young people and families hang out here during the weekends! 
  • To walk through motorbikes and cars and shops are the jostle for space with tourists said, so caution is required.

  • If you are interested in Vietnamese silks, shawls or traditional Hmong, Dao and other minority textiles [both old and new], don't miss Hang Gai Street.
