Old Quarter is an area of Hanoi with 76 streets, all with their unique quirks. Whilst in Old Quarter you can enjoy some cheap, market style shopping with each street uniquely dedicated to a different product. This was one of my favourite things about day-to-day life in Vietnam and an easy way to describe where you want to meet someone. “Oh, hey I am on shoe street, where are you?”, “I am on sewing street, just around the corner”. The reason for these dedicated trade streets is because in 1010, Vietnamese Emperor Ly Thai To moved his royal workings to the newly named capital Hanoi. As this transition took place many tradesmen followed and set up shop on the old streets. Each group of tradesmen set up their location on a specific street and therefore the tradition stuck. Highly handy for shopping I will have you know! To explore Old Quarter, I would strongly recommend ditching the bike and exploring on foot. Loose yourself in the craziness! Keep your eyes peeled, look high, look low and be sure to check down every little alley, Hanoi is a city of surprises.
