Hanoi was a blast and so was the shopping. There are so many things about Hanoi that I want to write about, but I just can’t help it that it’s the shopping that inspired me to stay up quite late just to edit the photos of my shopping haul. I haven’t shopped in such a long time! (Anyway, sorry for the low and uneven quality of the photos. I’m too excited to post about it, but too lazy to open Photoshop.)
There’s a night market in Old Quarter on weekends, and we went there twice! I have a very small budget for my trip and thought very little of shopping. But when I was suddenly faced with a whole street of cheap goods, I couldn’t stop myself! I didn’t buy that much, but if my budget allowed it, I could have bought more! The Dong Xuan night market reminds me of Divisoria but smaller and the Ladies’ Market in Mongkok but cheaper. So basically, it’s a really good place to shop since you won’t be too tired after and get good discounts, too.They accept both Vietnamese dong and USD in the market. Isn’t that convenient?
I heard that Thailand has a wider selection, though, but the price in Dong Xuan night market is just wowow! Hopefully, I’ll be able to post more photos of the market some time soon. [Read more…]
