Weekend night market

Before or After the trip to Bai Tu Long, you can join the weekend night market in Hanoi. From around 7pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the streets running north from Hang Dao, almost as far as Dong Xuan Market, May May, Hang Bac, Ta Hien street, are closed to traffic and vendors set up stalls selling all kinds of trinkets at the Weekend Night Market. Though it’s a fun place to touch the pulse of modern Hanoi, there’s not much on sale that would interest most Western visitors. Indeed most shoppers are Vietnamese youngsters snapping up fashion accessories like mobile phone covers. It can get very crowded at times, but winds down after 11pm.
