Three stories of wholesale and traditional goods, local food and hand-tailored clothes, as well as cosmetics and crafts, make the massive Dong Xuan Market a true experience of southeast Asia.
Both locals and tourists hustle through the jam-packed stalls of Dong Xuan during daylight hours, bartering for better deals on just about anything imaginable. But it’s after dark that the market truly comes alive, as travelers gather to sample traditional foods while watching cultural performances that include music, dance and plenty of energy, too.
Dong Xuan Market is the largest covered market in Hanoi. It is located in the center district Hoan Kiem on Dong Xuan Street. The night market takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 6 p.m.
