Enjoy a taste of local Hanoian life as you explore a local market and some of the street food stalls.
Wander through the narrow alleyways passing colourful stalls piled high with a vast array of fruit, vegetables, and sweets. Take photos of the vibrant colours and breathe in the aromas of the tropical fruits. If you’re feeling brave, venture to the exotic section to see kicking frogs, silkworms and wriggling eels. The entire market is alive with the buzz and excitement of the locals bartering and haggling for the freshest ingredients at the best prices.
After sampling fruit and street snacks at the market, continue walking to Hanoi’s Old Quarter. Visit popular street food stalls where you can sample some of the city’s signature dishes. Continue your culinary exploration with a stroll through the maze of bustling streets that make up the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Join the locals and pull up a plastic stool at a pavement stall to try Vietnamese snacks and a cup of iced tea, followed by a sweet dessert of fresh fruit and condensed milk.
Your evening walk ends with a visit to one of Hanoi’s best-kept secrets, a tucked-away cafe with amazing views over Hoan Kiem Lake.
