 Ta Hien street


The upbeat and crowded Ta Hien street may draw much attention for its bustling bars and pubs scenes, it is also a great place to start shopping. There are numerous clothing shops that open 11 pm daily. They have basic clothing pieces that are a 100% knock-off of fast fashion brands. Most of the shops here sell similar stocks so you can choose whichever shops that make you feel the most comfortable and you can compare the price before buying. The down side is that they are pretty crowded at times and changing room is tiny and you may have to share with others.

Chan Cam alley


This little alley has a collection of small shops and boutiques that carry from cheap Chinese made clothing pieces to local designers. Stocks in these shops are usually small in size and not many pieces available. Minimalism is a common theme in these boutiques. This is a popular shopping place for trendy Hanoians. Prices here are usually not fixed so a little bit of bargain may reduce the price a little but not much.

 

Ly Quoc Su street


Usually travelers come to Hanoi before heading off to many other locations such as Sapa or Ninh Binh. It requires some sport wear update that can be found on Ly Quoc Su street. This streets have a few shops that sell jackets and sports clothing. The quality if pretty decent for the price one pays and they do the job well, especially during Hanoi winter.
