One of the reasons that Hanoi - the capital city of Vietnam, has attracted so many tourists over the years is its Hanoi Old Quarter (36 old streets).It is an area well-known for the history, the architecture, the enormous amount and diversity of products and even the everyday life of its residents.

The Hanoi Old Quarter, near Hoan Kiem lake, has the original street layout and architecture of old Hanoi. Residential living and bustling was formed from the Ly – Tran dynasty, located east of the Thang Long citadel to watch the Red River. At the beginning of the 20th century the city consisted of only about 36 streets, most of which are now part of the old quarter.

The merchant ships can go into the streets to trade in, making the city more professional development. And traded products become street name, with the words "Hang" in front of each town a professional trade items. Each street then had merchants and households specialized in a particular trade, such as China bowls (Bat Su), roasted fish (Cha Ca) silver or jewelries (Hang Bac), women accessories (Cau Go) shoes and sandals (Hang Dau), silk (Hang Gai ) mixed fruits (To Tich)...

Visitors will certainly be eager to wander along the old streets to drop by stores and buy specialties.
