Address: 1 Pho Hang Da in Hanoi, Vietnam
Open Hours– 5 am to 5 pm from Monday to Sunday

At the intersection of  Yen Thai and Hang Da is the former site of Hang Da Market, a large, local dry-goods and clothing market. Sadly, the old four-story yellow stone building was recently torn down, and the new Hang Da Market will be a sterile shopping mall.

After a quick look, head north on Hang Da — don’t miss the large bird shop with a wall of bamboo cages on the northern corner of Hang Da and Hang Dieu.

Continuing north, Hang Da becomes Hang Dieu Street. Hang Dieu was traditionally the area for tobacco and pipe sellers; keep an eye out for the filigreed colonial edifices at no. 66 and no. 77 Hang Dieu (you’ll have to look up to distinguish these from the concrete clutter).
