Hi there, my wife & I will be in Hanoi on the 13th Nov (Mon) and with only one morning to spend, which local market should we visit, for its wide variety of local food and experience the buzzing life of a local market?

Dong Xuan, Hang Da or Cho Hom Market ??

Thank you for your suggestion/s.

Dong Xuan is the top, with this small street right next to the market that is full of food and local cuisine vendors. You'll absolutely be amazed by the buoyant atmosphere of the market with various types of goods. Hope you'll have a short sweet visit in my hometown (and be prepared to bargain if you wanna buy sth big :D)

You should try Dong Xuan market. Cuz it's in the old quater => you can decrease the cost of transportation, try good local food in the old quater, and I think vendor there are more familiar with foreigners.
Hang Da is no longer a traditional market, it is now like a small shopping mall
Cho Hom is ok too, with some good food and cheap clothes, shoes, porclain etc.
