Visit this place during weekends: the streets bordering the lake are closed to the traffic and the night life around is great!

Vietnamese outdoor eating- you need to dive into and sit amongst the locals on those tiny plastic chairs- hot pot is a must!
Singing st every corner .. super exciting.
Old houses in between - you can spend more evenings just looking and buying some clothes.

There are numerous streets in Old Quarter and you must reserve at least one whole day to take a stroll through the streets. You can find similar items sold at one section of Old quarters so I think it will be easier to compare prices. You can find basically everything in this Old Quarter. And bargain as much as you can. Take time to visit Hanoi Train street in which you can see trains passing through in between neighbourhood.

Not the easiest place to get around with small kids, but gives you the authentic experience. The lake, temple, water puppets, markets and restaurants, makes this a great place to stage off on your Vietnam experience.

We stayed in the Old Quarter during our recent visit to Hanoi. The bustle is contagious and the food is authentic. We ate at many street stalls and kept going back to our favorites. Lots is stalls selling the same touristy stuff. Lots of alleys to explore. Simply walk around and get lost amongst it all.
