Why locals love it

Much bigger as it has several floors packed to the roof with materials, clothes, shoes. Trainers etc. Not nearly as touristy as Saigon, as most did not speak English and did not confront us, but if you don't know what, or where you will find what you are looking for, or its value, it's hard to know where to start. Incredibly tight, maze like.

Why you should visit it

This is the location of the local wet market and is worth seeing but probably not so much for tourists as it is for locals. It is pretty busy and there isn’t much space to move around. We didn’t spend too long here but it is worth experiencing. This market is crazy, fabric everywhere. There's not a lot of patchwork cottons or non stretch fabrics.

Special tip

If you like textile and fabrics you need to go here.on the second floor of this market are so many stalls that it is overwhelming. I enjoyed it a lot.

A Great Place Some people may find this place a bit daunting as it is "very local," and there is very little English spoken. However, I was able to make myself understood and even have a bit of a laugh with the ladies. I went back twice as being a home sewer it is a haven for me. The selection is amazing and I found the prices very reasonable indeed. If I'm ever back in Hanoi I shan't miss a visit. My husband came with me and enjoyed it also. Afterwards we perused the food market on the ground floor - also, very interesting from a local cultural perspective.
