We especially loved the amount of (bicycle) hawkers, on this street selling there wares, probably due to this street running across old town, like spiders they catch more in there web.

Walked Hang Bac Street from our hotel to Giang for an Egg Coffee on December 6. Like most tourist streets in the Old Quarter, nothing special about this one.

We walked through this Street when we were in Hanoi last week. I ended up purchasing a silver necklace with 2 silver hearts with gems on them (in representation of my 2 boys). Price was quite reasonable, I paid $25 AUD for the necklace with not much of a haggle.

Having been to the gem market on the previous Sunday we were on the hunt to get our rough stones turned into necklaces. Whilst not particularly high end work this time we were very happy with the silver clasps made and my sons love their new aquamarine tube necklaces that they were able to purchase rough and then pay to have cut and designed to their specifications. We also were able to watch rough Ruby’s and other stones cut and polished which was fascinating. Cost of clasp, aquamarine cut and polish $11US. Black necklace $4US. Cost of stone at gem market around $40US. Memories and experience priceless 😉

This is a very busy street at times so be careful!

It was also the first time I (40yr old male) had wandered in Hanoi without my wife and I was bemused as I was approached several times by Grab riders offering ‘boom boom’ which I had to google to see what it was ☺️ It was actually a bit embarrassing and other tourists thought was hilarious as I blushed and explained ‘no boom boom’ several times. This was the only street I found this in our three weeks in various parts of Vietnam. My wife thought was funny 😂

Mostly traditional designs, lots of silver neck chains and bracelets. Some dicounts were available when asked, not much negotiations on price.
The street is not very long, lots of traffic. Go only if you are intending to buy. Otherwise, skip, not a must do.
The small shop on 151 Hang Bac seemed to be the locals go to shop when we were there. It was interesting to see what the locals were buying.

This street can be more chaotic then normal when walking along as the scooters can tend to get a head of stem up, however, it just adds to the atmosphere. The scooters angle park on the paths, however, on this street in particular, the path is quite wide, so we were able to walk in front of the bikes at times it is easier to walk on the road, we walked on the oncoming side as it is safest (in a weird kinda way). There are many jewellery shops all a long some specialising silver lots to look at and enjoy.

This is a central street and having stayed here twice, two separate visits, I would not stay elsewhere. Hang Bac Street is so convenient to literally everything in Hanoi, a short walk to the main shops, the lake, the night markets, several outstanding restaurants, several tour excursion outlets, everything. And of course the silver jewellery shops, lots of them with excellent quality jewellery. The hardest thing is deciding which jeweller to purchase from. Gold and precious stones shops are also on this street.

Good for strolling about, there's a temple nearby. Lots of hotels in the area, close to dong xuan and the lake as well. Beware of street mopeds and donut selling ladies (as they'll try to sell you old items for free which might cause you to be sick).

Not many people speak English on the streets, limited to few words. Lots of restaurant vendors will try to persuade you to come to their restaurant, try to ask them the price beforehand and also hopefully you know what you're eating.
