About Dong Xuan Market in Hanoi

Dong Xuan Market is the largest roofed indoor market in Hanoi and also the busiest one by far. Within a stone-throwing distance of Hoan Kiem Lake in the old quarter of Hanoi, this French-era marketplace is the hub for cheap wholesale trade in Hanoi. Established in 1889 by combining two previously existing markets, Dong Xuan is one of the principal new architectures of the French rule. The tell-tale feature of the market was its grand entrance divided into five arches corresponding to the five domes of the marketplace.

In the first Indo-China War in 1947, Dong Xuan Market saw a fierce conflict between the French and Viet forces. A memorial stands in remembrance of the event near the main gate of the market. Later in 1974, a devastating fire destroyed most of its construction but it was built back to its original architecture, and usual functioning was restored.

True to the market-styles of Vietnam, the ground floor of Dong Xuan Market Hanoi is kept for groceries and wet market. Locals visit here every day to do their daily shopping of fruits, vegetables, meat and seafood. Towards the back end, there is a bustling pet shop. Tourists do not have much to see here. But the three floors above that are lined up with several shops selling apparels, handbags, watches, sunglasses, stationeries, beauty products, jewellery, traditional Dong Ho drawings, Bat Trang ceramics, Binh Da embroideries, sand paintings and what not. Dong Xuan Market has a dining space as well, serving authentic dishes like Vietnamese coffee, Banh Cuon (rolled cake) and Bun Cha (noodles and grilled pork).  

The regular market gets over by evening, and the night market takes over after that. It has been in place since 2003 and mainly caters to tourists. Other than shopping souvenirs, they can enjoy the extensive range of local cuisine and enjoy the cultural activities like live Vietnamese music and instruments. The weekend night market is even better when the street is made pedestrian-only and more stalls are there to pick and choose from at low prices.

    It was well coordinated punctual and professional. The hectic travel I had fixed and my needs especially for vegetarian food in Vietnam and especially in Sapa valley was an incredible experience. They even ensured I had sufficient rest to recoup myself for 12 days. Travel triangle and Asia authentic were very good. Thanks to Karan and Eric. Even in halong bay cruise moment they realised I was vegetarian they took care of my needs so well Bana hills trip even in rain, vegetarian food in Sapa valley and Halong bay. 12 km trekking in Sapa, halong bay, Tam coc river cruise

    The entire planning and execution was really awesome. We didn't experience any sort of issue during our entire travel but just a suggestion would be on the food served during the cruise i.e one serving only condition; if you could remove this it would be all the more great. And continuous support on whatssapp ensured smooth transition. Really satisfied.

    Travel Triangle made our honeymoon memorable but some arrangements was not made as expected, like we were on honeymoon trip but once we reached our hotel there was no proper welcome as it should be neither our room was decorated, after reminding our main vietnam travel agent they arranged our rooms, which was not communicated by the Travel Triangle. Else the whole trip was amazing and would consider Travel Triangle again in future while planning another! The best of memories came from the Halong Bay Cruise. It was spot-on! Food, Activity, Staff, and everything was something to cherish about.

    Gogibutalia's 6 days trip to Hanoi

    Excellent and timely help all time round, We missed the first bus but the Staff of Go Asia was too good and made arrangements for a private cab, we had to pay, no doubt, But since we were late at the immigration office the day before, but still the driver was polite and very courteous at Hanoi Airport and took us to the destination Hotel, the market was nearby and we had a good time in Hanoi. But not in HCMC Airport since even though We came out in due course of time the Driver didn't carry a placard, we could not recognize each other and almost 30-40 minutes were wasted , the driver said he forgot in the Vehicle, but after the placard it was smooth sailing and the tour went well without any hitch. The Tour staff was too good and took good care of us and so were the guides in the bus. Explained all the details in very nice fashion. The best was the guide in HCMC on Mekong Delta Bay, the guide was too good and very humorous and had us in splits. We wish them well and Thank them for the courteous service extended to us. Thanks Again.

    The tour agents were very friendly and approachable. Sophie understood our challenges and was very cooperative. I would like to make a special mention for Dai who was the guide on the bus to & fro between Hanoi and Sapa. When our small child wanted to use the toilet he arranged for a grab cab for us so that we could reach the hotel earlier than the shuttle bus would have dropped us. Later we realised he had paid for it as well. There was no need for him to do this and we really appreciate his gesture. Throughout the trip, during meals covered in the itinerary, they really took care of the vegetarian couple in our group. A special Anniversary cake was prepared for us on the (Han La Bay) cruise. All the staff onboard were very friendly. Thank you Bamboo Hat & team.
