Lots of fun to wander, eat, and people watch. We didn'tbuy much here, we are at the beginning of our trip and don't want to carry it for another 5 weeks.
Eat at the little local restaurants. You'll pay a fraction but will get similar quality food.

The Old Quarter is a great place to walk around and check out Hanoi. There are countless places to eat, meet fellow travelers and absorb some of Hanoi's culture. At night, there are typical Vietnamese drinking areas on the sides of the roads, that offer Bia Hanoi for ridiculously cheap prices. Worth checking out if in Hanoi!

If you don't mind horrendous traffic, sidewalks so narrow or crowded that you have to walk in the street, and bargaining for your purchases, you will love the Hanoi Old Quarter. The street life is fascinating and the street food very tasty. Hanoi has 4000 years of history and is a special place that anyone interested in Vietnam has to visit.
