One of the famous market in Ha Noi is Dong Xuan - Hanoi’s oldest market Dong Xuan mainly sells bulk food items, clothing and accessories targeted towards locals in its three stores of packed aisles. Come though simply to experience a typical Southeast Asian wet market on the ground floor and in the market’s surrounds, where you’ll see plenty of colorful fresh produce as well as sacks full of dried mushrooms, fish and other dry goods. Upstairs is mainly cloth and clothes, and there’s a food hall here too, though the ones just outside the market seem to attract more of a crowd, at least during the day (perhaps its busy early morning). Shops surround the streets leading onto the market; we snapped up some coffee filters at one of the shops just outside the market for 20,000 dong each.
