  • The scooters that brush you, smells of meat that burn out and the sound of car horns. The atmosphere is very special but personally I found it very exciting, a real experience. Unfortunately sellers who harass the streets get quickly annoying.

  • From the entrance to the hoan Kiem Lake, Dong Xu Yen market leading up to the long night. It's that kind of feeling, but to stop the things own attractions, and snack Street is also quite. The price of a lot of stuff is cheap and has seen only on weekends, but the earthquake felt that rarely have the time is right for the Saints.

  • Typical Asian night market with lots of clothes, hand phone accessories, key chains, nick nacks, finger food etc. there is a roadside seating area beside a convenient store that sells BBQ pigeon, fried noodles along with some other local food. the pigeon had a ducky after taste. Does not taste like chicken. Didn't know 1 pigeon can be 100k Dong until then.
  • an okay night market, lot of things to see and buy along the street stands that are in front of the stores. extends a good distance from the lake and down some alleys. i did not see anything that unique that was not at many night markets in asia except the standard trite tourist items. there is quite a bit of food and things to do at the beginning of it, or end, by the lake and many stores are restaurants open in each direction on Hang Dong where it crosses the main market street of Hang Bao.
  • Lines of night market stalls stretching all the way to the Dong Xuan Market. Quite typical of an Asian night market, mainly selling cheap clothing and knick knacks. Nothing really fancy or unique. Also doesn't sell much street food too. But it is nice to walk amidst the bustling crowd.
  • Good selection of clothes, souvenirs and food. Despite being crowded with locals, patrol officers are situated at various posts to ensure safety as there can be motorbikes passing through.
  • Quite bad. Most branded items are frauds and the original ones are flimsy. Bargaining can be impossible with some of the shopkeepersm
