Everything You Need To Know About Ba Dinh District

Ba Dinh District is a big open space that’s accessible within a 15-minute drive from Hanoi's Old Quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake. It has been Vietnam’s political nucleus since the French occupation and was where Ho Chi Minh declared independence in 1945. There are many historic and important sights in and around the square, such as Ho Chi Minh’s Soviet-styled mausoleum and his stilt house, the One Pillar Pagoda and Hanoi Flag Tower – to name just a few.

Historical significance aside, Ba Dinh is home to mid-range hotels, quaint restaurants, and several neighbourhood bars that overlook Hanoi Botanical Gardens. A popular alternative to the often hectic and overpopulated Old Quarter, check out our guide to everything you need to know about Ba Dinh District.

Ba Dinh District Attractions

You'll find more landmarks here than anywhere else in Hanoi, with many historical monuments and famous sites. It's especially suited to those looking to learn about the capital’s war-filled history and experience the local culture during their holiday. There's also several of the finest examples of French colonial architecture in Southeast Asia, include the Presidential Palace, a yellow three-storey building built in Renaissance and Beaux Art style.

Ba Dinh District Dining

The diverse dining scene is popular amongst Hanoi’s affluent locals and expats, ranging from world-class restaurants to humble-looking coffee shops. Set within walking distance of notable landmarks, such as Ba Dinh Square, the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long, President’s Palace and One Pillar Pagoda, these dining venues are perfect for fuelling up with delicious local and western favourites before you explore the rest of the city.

Ba Dinh District Nightlife

Nightlife in Ba Dinh District ranges from five-star hotels housing sophisticated lounges and rooftop bars with breathtaking views of the city to live music and affordable cocktails in quirky bars close to the prominent universities. Unlike Old Quarter, many of these establishments tend to stay open and busy all night long – perfect for bar hopping until the wee hours of morning. You can also party alongside trendy youths and expats at vibrant nightclubs in Ba Dinh District, which offer attractive happy hour promotions and international DJs spinning a mix of EDM, trance, deep house, electro and hip-hop tunes.

Ba Dinh District Shopping

While Ba Dinh District is renowned for its extensive sightseeing and dining opportunities, its shopping scene is almost non-existent save for a smattering of convenience shops and handicrafts stalls close to prominent landmarks. If you’re looking to experience the local lifestyle while you’re in Ba Dinh, we highly recommend paying a visit at the neighbouring Tay Ho District, which houses the Quang An Flower Market and Tay Ho Weekend Market.
