Beginning as an alligator infested swamp nearly 2,000 years ago; the Old Quarter’s winding streets are the heart and soul of the capital. The area began to garner its reputation as a crafts location when the Vietnamese people gained independence in the 11st century and King Ly Thai To had his palace built there. To ward off thieves, the entire area was surrounded by stone walls. Two hundred years later, the artisan villages inside evolved into craft guilds.

Though history refers to the 36 streets, there are actually closer to 50. Historians believe that 36 refers to the number of guilds with workshops in the area, with many of the streets named after guilds and the merchandise vendors have been selling the same goods for hundreds of years.

Despite the consistency of some, there has been significant changeover due to updated concerns, Ma May, which once sold religious items and was home to an infamous bandit, is now a hub for tourism offices.
