The old quarter is a very busy and bustling area of Hanoi. There's loads of shops and different places to eat. The streets are relly busy and crossing the road can be a bit of a challenge, but be brave and throw yourself across.

Very interesting! It is a must for whoever explores Hanoi. One should be very carefull regarding street food and make the right and higienic choices. This advice is good for the whole of Vietnam.
