Hanoi's Old Quarter is the city's liveliest place and one of the most evocative spots in Vietnam. Although there are two official marketplaces here, the entire area is one large market. In the quarter, you can browse for giant red candlesticks, silk, snake wine, woven mats, coffee, musical instruments or lacquerware - or just have a bowl of pho noodle soup. Just navigating the maze of streets and alleys is an adventure.
