Hanoi's Old Quarter is one of the city's most unusual and lively places. Although there are two official marketplaces here, the entire area is in fact one large market. In the quarter, you can browse for giant red candlesticks, silk, snake wine, woven mats, coffee, musical instruments, "ghost money" or lacquerware - or just have a bowl of pho noodle soup. Just navigating the maze of streets and alleys is an adventure. Though it is easy to get lost in the Old Quarter, simply climb into a rickshaw or cyclo and let the driver show you around.
