Considered as Hanoi’s biggest indoor market, the Dong Xuan Market is a four-story market that sells a wide range of products. From fresh produce to clothing and souvenirs, the market is the best place to visit if you want to experience the local lifestyle in Hanoi. Even if you don’t intend to shop, some products are just so hard to resist that you could end up buying a Vietnamese hat or perhaps, a pair of cheap sunglasses!
Like most of the markets in Hanoi, haggling is the way of life here. Thus, it’s great to explore the market with your local guide who speaks the language and has a better understanding of how the bargaining works. Shopping with your local guide also means you’ll get the local price.
