30 metres out of the hostel, you can already feel the city's hustle and bustle, probably the busiest streets you'll ever see in your life. Roads full of motorbikes, scary at first but you'll get used to it and restaurants that sell affordable, healthy and authentic Vietnamese cuisines. Pubs welcoming and historical sights you cannot miss out on.
Walk to the famous Ta Hien Beer Street to grab a drink or bite to eat and people watch. Walk around, stopping into the quirky local boutiques to find some mementos for your trip.
Shoppers searching for a statement-making look, visitors hungry for a real Hanoi Pho and music lovers who want to catch an up-and-coming band all head to the Old Quarter.
Ethnically diverse restaurants, bars that keep the party going long after dessert and galleries and performance spaces help make Old Quarter the place where everyone meets.
Most of typical tourist places (Ho Chi Minh Complex, Temple of Literature, Dong Xuan Market, Night market, Hoan Kiem lake, Hoa Lo Prison, Fine art museum, Women museum) are in the Old Quarter.
Eclectic and always open, you'll find Hanoi a thriving city in your own way.
The neighborhood is a walker's paradise! Easily navigate the city on foot to find local eateries, cafes, boutiques, and tourist places. The Old Quarter is pretty small, just 3 kilometer square.
