Shopping, eating and everything else

by chriztina

Anyone has fashion boutique, tailor (for the local wear "ao dai") and restaurant recommendations for our holiday in Hanoi? Thanks.

Re: Shopping, eating and everything else

by balhannah

Shopping is best in the Old Quarter, there are streets and streets of things to buy. Each street has the same things for sale, ie, all shoes, all toys, etc, etc. Its a wonderful area to wander around, so much to see and look at. Also, cheap accommodation is found in this area, and there are also plenty of Restaurants and local on the kerb places to eat. click on any of our names and then Hanoi for more details of things to see and do. Have a great time. Its cheap shopping.

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Wires Wires Everywhere!!

by AKtravelers

Nothing reveals the rapid transformation of Hanoi like all wires attached to the city telephone poles. Wow! It looks like the poles are going to keel over there is so much cable hanging from them. It's as if they can't string it up fast enough and as soon as one cable is strung another is needed.

overnight on a luxury cruise Halong

by undiascomootro

IT HAS been said that if you are Vietnamese and haven't been to Halong Bay, you can't really understand your own country. And if you are a foreigner and haven't visited Halong Bay, you can't say you have been to Vietnam.

World Heritage-listed Halong Bay, in Quang Ninh Province, is certainly an imposing sight. More than 2000 islands project out of the pea-green waters of the Gulf of Tonkin and form a mysterious tourist drawcard. Legend has it that an enormous dragon plunged to Earth with tail lashing and gouged out valleys and crevices with its mighty force.

I passed up the Loch Ness-styled stories and boarded instead another piece of history, a paddle steamer called Emeraude.

In 1910 a steamer called the Emeraude was offering unforgettable cruises in Halong Bay. The boat was part of a flotilla that had left Bordeaux in 1858 in search of adventure and fortune. Over more than 50 years they were fortunate enough to find both. Today a luxurious replica of the Emeraude offers overnight cruises on the bay.

We passed innumerable caves and grottos, small curls of sand and local fishing boats that bobbed cheerfully at anchor. We stopped at Sung Sot (surprise) cave where I figured the 90-step climb would provide great views, even though I wasn't particularly a fan of caves. The view was indeed lovely but the cave, as it turned out, was spectacular.

Then it was back to the onboard luxury of our paddle steamer, where the crew
had swung open the huge paddle wheel to expose a perfect swimming deck.
Passengers hurled themselves into the calm waters of the bay, humbled by the
scope of the surrounding scenery, described as a world of animals.

As the stars started to shine in fewer numbers, a distant sound of beating
drums echoed through the bay. The birds began their high-pitched shrills and
small fishing boats started to work the waters.

When the sun rose, climbing higher in the sky and toppling over the closest
mountain, it was time to say our goodbyes. We made the three-hour journey from Halong Bay back to Hanoi.

by imstress about Shopping Areas

If you would like to buy Union Bay, Quicsilver and some local brands clothings, this is the factory outlet that you should go to.

Lots of clothes to choose from and you can even try them out and alter your pants on the spot.

I believe the locals buy their clothing here because prices are reasonable and at a fixed price.

You can get a T-Shirt under 50,000 VND and pants and bermudas under 100,000 VND.

Municipal water puppets theatre

by SirRichard about Water Puppet Theater

Water Puppets are a really nice and different experience, a real must when U come to Hanoi.
You will find the theatre at the north east bank of the Hoan Kiem Lake.
There are 2 performances everyday, 18:30 and 21:30. If U have time, reserve in advance, they might be complete for the same day. If you wanna make photos inside, you will have to pay an extra fee.
BUT.... I didn't, and nobody told me anything about that or asjed for the camera voucher. Anyway, I just took a couple of pics :-)))))

Pedaling around Hanoi

by 34N118W

As with much of Southeast Asia, most everyone gets around Hanoi on bicycles or motos. You can rent a bicycle for around $1 dollar a day. Motos rent for around $7-$8 dollars a day. I personally don't know how to ride a moto, nor would I risk the chaotic traffic of Hanoi's streets (see Lao moto accident). Instead, I prefer to hire a moto driver to get me where I'm going. Make sure you negotiate the price before you go. They'll usually quote you three times higher than the actual price. What else is new, right? You can also go for a relaxing cyclo ride. Same rules apply as with the moto drivers.
