Hanoi Old Quarter

District Vietnam, Vietnam

Experience a rare sense of timelessness Hanoi Old Quarter

Hanoi Old Quarter is ideal for travelers looking to experience the rare sense of timelessness that seems to sum up this area of the city – you can still see glimpses of previous generations despite the modernization that is going on relentlessly. This prominent district is relatively pedestrian-friendly compared to other cities in Vietnam: on weekends and evenings, the streets are closed off to motorized vehicles to make way for bia hoi bars and food stalls selling a variety of Vietnamese food. For a feel of rich old Vietnamese customs, you can also stroll along ancient commercial streets surrounding Hoan Kiem Lake, which are named after their original businesses dating back about 1,000 years. Located on the northern end of Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi Old Quarter’s most popular attractions comprise mostly quaint Buddhist shrines, street markets, and traditional Vietnamese arts.
