Shimmering and magical beauty of Hanoi at night

All well-known destinations in Hanoi sparkle when night falls.

Hanoi at night bears a unique beauty, both ancient and modern, peaceful and somewhat splendid. That beauty starts to show off right from early evening, when the street lights and decorative lighting system are lit up.

Contrary to the bustling scene in the morning, at night, when the street lights shine, everyone has fallen asleep, Hanoi at night radiates peaceful and charismatic charm, along with many interesting things for everyone to discover.

Well-known destinations in the capital city, including Hoan Kiem lake, Thanh Nien street, the downtown walking street area, among others, all sparkle when night falls.

Especially, the street night market in the heart of Hanoi Old Quarter has long been a familiar destination of Hanoians every weekend evening. This is not only a place where normal trading activities take place, but also a place for cultural exchange, preserving many unique features of 36 old streets, which has been attracting both local and foreign tourists.

Streets are glowing with fanciful colors and the people admire the rushing flow of vehicles.
