Chợ Đồng Xuân or Dong Xuan Market is the city’s largest traditional market and a highlight of a visit to the Old Quarter. A massive indoor pavilion is surrounded by streets teeming with sellers day and night (early morning is best to visit). Find lots of Chinese knockoff goods, produce, and stuff for everyday use in homes — but there are plenty of neat trinket shops tucked down the narrow lanes of this maze of commerce, and just the experience of walking around (or photographing the chaos) is a reason to visit.
Chợ Hôm or Hom Market – one of the older markets in Hanoi, this venue specializes in some extremely unique Vietnamese foods at a cheap price. Just avoid those foods that appear strange in appearance. You will also find Hanoi’s largest fabric market here. You can find just about every color, style, and type of fabric items from China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam.

Night Market at Hanoi Old Quarters
The night market spreads across Hang Dao, Hang Ngang, Hang Duong, Dong Xuan Market and Hang Giay streets. It opens at 18.30 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. The outdoor Night Market is very different from workaday Dong Xuan, mostly because it’s more of a social event. Locals stroll the streets shoulder-to-shoulder, perusing inexpensive goods sold at the lighted stalls. It’s fun and colorful, and definitely not only about the shopping.
o Clothes are the most popular goods.
o Low-cost and on sale products are very attractive to students.
o Many Chinese souvenirs are also available.
o The night market is a venue for lovers.
