Shopping in Hanoi is an opportunity to discover and relish the unique stores and products at reasonable prices.

The streets in Hanoi are filled with the locals’ tiny boutiques and almost any kinds of commodities are pretty reachable. Here are some suggestions for products that you can purchase in Hanoi.

While young people prefer the noisy and busy atmosphere of modern and luxury or pavement cafes, old ones love cafes which have been around for a long time, located in old streets or inside deep alleys. Office workers like cafes with romantic and quiet styles like those in Phố Cổ (Old Quarter).

Vietnam’s most beautiful stream in autumn

The poetic beauty of Yen stream in autumn can melt the hearts of any photographer and tourist. This is the perfect place to go on a quiet autumn day in the outskirts of Hanoi.

Yen stream is packed during springtime when hundreds of visitors travel here to enjoy the sacred atmosphere of the famous Perfume Pagoda festival. It is the only water way to reach Huong Pagoda. Tourists usually spend an hour on the stream before reaching Chua Huong. The stream itself is not too lengthy but is long enough to attract travelers.
