Street Vendors, Hanoi: 4 reviews and 13 photos
On the doorstep of my hotel there is the weekend night market, great place to look for bargains.. I was able to buy the 2 handmade embroidered bags for only 90,000 dong. Of course its after a long bargaining as initial price is 120,000 for the 2.
The seller are an old couple, they dont have their own booth, only on a cloth placed on the streets, with their bags and they dont speak English, since I dont speak Vietnamese either, we bargain with calculator , LOTS OF SMILES and a lot of facial expression. :-)
Its one of the best deals that Ive got, as on some of the stalls at the night market, one bag is selling at 100,000 each, goodness how I wish I bought more. :-)
Night market / local market is always a great introduction to the local culture...
Dress Code: hide your camera, as its a testament that you are a tourist, and almost automatically increase the price by X times.
street smarts, there are some petty crimes, pick pockets since lots of people..
Directions: DOn Xuan- Hang Duong street
