Hi are there any night markets in Hoi an or Danang
The night market in Hoi An is a tourist market selling mainly lanterns and the usual souvenir tat. There are some good walking street food vendors selling various snacks but no permanent food stalls. It's beautiful and well worth a look as it's just across the walking bridge from the old town.
In Da Nang there is the local Hoa Khanh market, it sets up daily at around 18:00 and wraps up at midnight. It's huge and not frequently visited by tourists (so being ripped off is unusual). It's a real mish mash of interesting products interspursed with loads of food stalls - just like a market should be and well worth a visit. It's tricky to find, so ask your hotel to organise a taxi for you. It's up the top end of Hung Vuong Street opposite the park. The busiest (and best) nights are at the weekend, but it's open all week.
Yes the market in Hoi An is sort of permanent: but if you wander you can find some interesting bits and pieces, pots n pans trinkets, hardware and kitchen gadgets. You can find clothes and shoes etc but we were a bit disappointed with tailors and shoemakers ( very fussy traveling companions) throughout Vietnam - found Thailand better especially for shoes and leather gear.
That's Cho Hoi An, which is permanent and shuts up around 18:00, it's great (if you can avoid the temporary cloth market tailors), but is by no means a night market unless you go at dawn when it's at it's best. Local Hoi An people go to bed early, the night market here is just for tourists.
