Shopping Centres in Vietnam
 
 
 

Hanoi

Hang Bac Street
Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

Hang Bac Street is one of the oldest streets in Vietnam and has its roots in silver making dating back to the 13th century when silver casters where brought here from rural villages by request of Le Thang Tong. Silver goods are still produced here today with most of the work being completely original made by secret methods that have been passed down for generations. This is a charming street to explore, rich in history and culture in addition to jewellers selling beautiful Vietnamese pieces.

Hang Dau Street
Northeast Corner of Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi

Shoe shoppers will be in retail heaven with hundreds of shoe sellers lining Hang Dau Street. Western men may not find much over size nine but there is plenty of choice in women’s shoes. Most of the footwear consists of brand names made at Vietnamese factories that have been rejected as seconds, making them a great purchase with usually only a small imperfection. There are also plenty of fake reproduction bags where Hang Dau Street meets Lo Su.

Hang Gai Street
Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

Personally tailored suits made to measure from superb quality silk are best bought from a tailor on Hang Gai Street, renowned for its quality and choice of craftsmen. Most stores take credit cards and you should start bargaining at around 50% of the asking price and pay no more than 70%. Suits can be ready in 24 hours and it pays to go to a better quality store and avoid the market street traders to guarantee the best quality silk. This is also a great street to buy rice paper products including paintings, notebooks, lamps and cards.

Intimex Supermarket
22-23 Le Thai To Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

Hanoi has its fair share of niche gourmet retail outlets including Intimex which sells a good selection of imported foodstuff and wines on its ground floor. There is also a department store on the second level, small but well stocked; no bargaining necessary as prices are fixed.

Pho Trang Tien
Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi

Pho Trang Tien is the street to find art from the private galleries located between the Hanoi Opera House and Hoan Kiem Lake. Bargaining is expected here and art works worth looking out for include those from the up and coming artists quietly making a name for themselves in this great Old Quarter location.

Trang Tien Plaza
Southeast Corner of Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi

Imported brand names covering the world of fashion, apparel and electronic goods pack the three-storey upmarket Trang Tien Plaza, attracting a young trendy local crowd. Most products are in the luxury bracket at this thriving western-style mall with products including jeans such as Levis and Sony Cameras. The mall is situated on the edge of Hoan Kiem Lake and features a supermarket on the top floor.
