Create an itinerary including Old Quarter
Walk to the hum of local traffic and curious tourists in Old Quarter, the business district and downtown hub of Hanoi that dates back to the 13th century. Bearing the names of the businesses that once stood there, the quarter's narrow streets teem with cafes, bars, temples, shops, teahouses, and stalls selling French and Vietnamese foods. Watch a water puppet show, plant yourself at a sidewalk cafe to drink a local beer, or bargain with a smile at shops and street food stalls. Plan to see Old Quarter and other attractions that appeal to you using our Hanoi trip planner.

  • We’ll worth a visit to see how the real street life and businesses operate. Everything from fruit & veg. Sales to shoe repairs. Street food, jewellery shops, banks and small hotels line the streets.....  more
