The Dong Xuan Market is the largest in Hanoi, with over 100 vendors selling everything from fruit and vegetables to spices and clothing to electronics. The market is the leading traditional marketplace of Hanoi and is an experience that must be part of any visit to Hanoi, filled with fascinating sounds, sights, and smells.
The Dong Xuan Market is set between Hang Khoai and Cau Dong, with two main aisles and many other small walkways once inside. It is a maze and myriad sights, sounds, and smells, an intense sensory experience and memorable life experience! Located right in the center of Hanoi, the market is a fascinating place to stroll whether you are interested just in observing the magnificent sculpted displays of spices, mouthwatering array of foods, and stunning energy of the place, or if you want to get involved in real-market buying, negotiating and tasting!
The market is open every day and is particularly busy on the Tet holiday and Full moon festival with shoppers preparing for the holidays. On our Hanoi Old Quarter, you will get a taste of all the market has to offer and have a chance to taste some of the best dishes and buy products to take home with you.
