In Hanoi, there are also food markets. These street markets have been for years one of the ways of providing for the residents of the Vietnamese capital. In them we find, meats of all kinds, including dog, Fish, seafood, fruit and alcohol. Because health conditions are not the best, I do not recommend buying anything (except the unpeeled fruit and bottled drinks), but it's essential to see it.
This beautiful city survives mainly on tourism. There's a lot of business, especially in fabrics and tailoring, but once it got dark, there was a different market on the opposite side of the river. This one mainly sells colorful silk lanterns, different sizes and colors, it was really beautiful with all the lanterns lit. The lanterns are quite affordable and fold so there's not complicated to bring them home. Another important thing they're mainly sold here in Hoi An, it's difficult to find so much variety in ther places.
