hanoi travel guide for shopping

Hanoi is not yet a shopping paradise like Hong kong or Bangkok. Hanoi city is like a big market where you can buy everything in big Hanoi shopping centers or in small shops. However, the best buys are souvenirs and traditional handicrafts like lacquerware, ceramics, embroidery, silk and paintings......

+ Big Hanoi shopping centers: Trang Tien plaza(near Hoan Kiem lake)and Vincom Tower at 98 Ba Trieu street.

hanoi travel guide - how to shop?

To be smart and discriminating customers, you should examine carefully the products you want to buy. The first reason is most of things are made by hands, so some small mistakes on the products are normal. The second is that many shops do not allow to return or change things. The third is that many shops put high quality things and low quality things together and customers could not see the difference. For these reasons we organize Hanoi shopping tours to traditional villages where you can see how they are made and you can shop there.
