    The night opens blocking the road. In the meantime the distance watch, honestly there's not much personality to the goods. Most of the stuff I don't have a lot of exclusive stuff is something similar to Viet Nam. Still, it's worth enough to be spectacular.

    There's plenty to see and lots of prices are affordable. Fri., sat., Sun only because of the timing of the opening must fit well and, 7: in the past, a lot of them did not open a shop like a thorn in 8 o'clock! It's not a severe one way overpriced shops all have to buy a similarly aligned, so the price and where you can buy things without having to worry greatly.

    Basically, tourist night markets are the same - same souvenir shirts and items, street food and vibe. The market is open on Friday up to Sunday only. But if you must, a visit cannot harm you.  more »

    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
