What to buy in Hanoi?
The capital of Vietnam is one of the best places for shopping in Vietnam, only surpassed by cities like Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh city.
In Hanoi we have a lot of shoes, sports shoes, clothes, textile, silk, bags, accessories, crafts and phone accessories.
Generally the prices of purchases in Ha Noi are from 1$ to 20$ for each good, but it all depends on the quality of the article.
In Vietnam when paying you haggle, or as they say in Vietnam, wondered about a discount. It is easier to get a discount if you buy more.
The small neighborhood stores and markets do not accept credit cards, only the tourist shops and malls. Generally generally charged an additional 3% when paying by credit card.
The great advantage of Hanoi when it comes to shopping is that practically all stores are concentrated in the vicinity of Hoan Kiem Lake, in the District of the same name, Hoan Kiem district.
