Great Places to Shop in Hanoi French Quarter

The shopping scene in Hanoi’s French Quarter comprises high-end shopping malls, art galleries stocking pieces from some of Vietnam’s finest modern artists, and boutiques within walking distance of several five-star hotels. Located just south of Hoan Kiem Lake, this affluent neighbourhood is most famous for the Hanoi Opera House which everything else is built around in a mimicked architectural style. It’s popular with those who are looking to live it up in style during their time in Vietnam’s capital.
If you are looking for cheap souvenirs then the French Quarter isn’t the best area in Hanoi. Instead, this is the place for chic designer gear, homeware and artwork. The iconic Trang Tien Plaza shopping mall will be the first place to go, but there’s other, smaller shops, boutiques and galleries renowned for housing designer labels and art pieces. Read on for our guide to the best places to shop in Hanoi French Quarter.
