Wholesale market for locals only. We were told many times “no sale for you”. Give it a miss as you are not likely to make a sale

Good, huge markets with everything you can think of. Be aware that it’s incredibly busy, squashed in, four levels and minimal English is spoken. Awesome place to grab a bargain and can barter with most of the stall holders

Huge market that sells everything. Clothes, shoes, hats, make-up, toys, souvenirs and so on. It has three storages and seems a bit confusing, but it’s worth it. In the night time it changes so that they mostly sell clothes. Remember to bargain 😊

Terrible shopping due to being turned away at any decent store. Don’t waste your time. So many better places in Hanoi to buy from.

The volume of souvenirs found here are cool but except for that there’s nothing much to see and the whole market is such a mess!

This is where the market owners get their stock. Prices are around 50% of the street prices. However they prefer to sell bulk lots although they will sell individually. Very little bargaining. And almost zero English.

I went at around 5 PM and saw most shops already closed and a few that remained were wrapping up.
