This is a very bustling shopping street, there is everything from silk to t shirts, you can have clothes made too. If you are not buying it’s worth a visit just to experience.

it is a very nice corner, near to Hoan Kiem Lake, can find a lot of interesting stuff like Ao Dai, traditional dress, silky scarf, small souvenir, really crowded a lot of traffic but I like it :)

Apart from cafes and shops Hang Gai has a live theatre as well ... only seats about 30 for a 1 hour show.. so booking is always essential . If you want something hard to get .... this is the street you'll find it in.

Hand Gai is supposedly a fabric street but many more types of merchants have moved in since the old days. It’s one of the many streets of the Old Hanoi quarter and fun to wander through.

Definitely get VND if you're in Hanoi or any other city in Vietnam. That's what the prices for items are usually listed as and you won't have to worry about the exchange rate on the street.
