Shopping in Hanoi is first class, a cornucopia of local and international goods that fulfils any shopaholic's wildest dreams. At a more relaxed pace than the fevered browsing in Saigon and other Asian metropolises, shopping in Hanoi allows you take your time to find the perfect piece to bring home. The clothing scene is limited, especially for foreign sizes, but specialty outlets cater to silk lovers, fashionistas and casual browsers alike. For those who wish to blend in with the locals, try a custom tailored ao dai, an elegant tunic that leaves just enough to the imagination. For all your shopping needs in Hanoi, head first to the Old Quarter, a maze of colonial streets that houses every product under the sun. If you don't find what you're looking for, you're sure to find something better!

To accompany Hanoi's booming tourist scene, souvenir shops have stepped up their game and offer a wide range of unique products to commemorate your stay. From traditional embroidery and handicrafts to stylish ceramics and housewares, there is something for everyone. You'll find that most paintings are reproductions; however, there are genuine works of art created in Hanoi and the pieces are stunning. Galleries full of lacquer paintings and cultural touchstones are widespread and a burgeoning contemporary scene toes the line between gentle subversion and impressive artistry.
