Large street market, but there are loads of these in and around Asia... Worth exploring the intersecting streets for really nice street food.

If you are XL size, you will have a problem finding any clothing :P And if in addiction you are a picky customer (like me :P), there is no chance to find anything nice XD Beside that, nice place :)

We had our bikes so make sure you have a chain and padlock and remember we're you left them as the market is very busy, I used to visit Hanoi on business and just love the place, everyone is so friendly, a bike is a must try and go with the flow of traffic, but keep your eyes looking ahead never look backwards regardless as others will move away from you from behind, best rule I found.

After reading the reviews below I changed my plans and decided not to visit the market but by chance we ended up in its territory yesterday so we decided to take a look. I'm glad we did. A busy and bustling place filled to the brim of all sorts of goods.I believe that when you travel away from home it is to immerse yourself in the life and culture of the destination. The tourists below clearly dont share this ambition and have clearly come to Vietnam with their eyes closed. If younwant to experience the sights and smells of Vietnam then visit the market. Dont go to the people's market and expect it to be just like the very comfortable 5 star hotel you just left.those who complain that it is a wholesale market - it is - and if you had read the text above then you would have known that.Personally it is nice to go to an area of Hanoi selling something different not aimed at tourists.Recommended for an hour's excursion - if you are not a pompous tourist that is....

Because we were staying at a top end hotel, we didn't give much credence to the warning that this "Walking Market" was just a series of streets of stalls offering pretty tacky and poorly constructed goods. We thought they just wanted us to buy things from the hotel boutique. We arrived soon after dark when they put up the barricades that said Walking Street. The motor bike riders simply ignored these signs with as much contempt as they rode through red lights in the rest of the city. So the first barrier to deal with was the safety issue. We hadn't found our 'Hanoi feet' when we undertook this outing. So now we had motor bikes in restricted walking environments and a range of poor goods to deal with. It seems that the sellers were not that interested in entering into the socially stimulating practice of bargaining, or at best were half-hearted about it. We were so relieved when it started to look like rain. The sellers started to erect tarpaulins and do battle with the wind that had risen. This made us feel better about grabbing the first cab and heading back to our hotel where we holed up, having first grabbed a bottle of French Merlot, a Baguette, some Brie and sliced ham off the bone. There are just some travel attractions that need to be be allowed to mature in the bottle for longer before consumed.
