Historic Vestiges Dong Xuan Market

Among tens of markets in the capital, such as Mo, Hom, Cua Nam or Ngoc Ha, Dong Xuan is the biggest. It was founded in 1889 in the Dong Xuan Quarter. At first, it was an open-air market, but it was later rebuilt with five iron arches and a roof made of zinc-coated iron sheets.

Located near the railway station, at the beginning of Long Bien Bridge, by the red River, Dong Xuan Market is a convenient place for goods from everywhere to converge. At this market, you can find almost any everyday goods. Dong Xuan Market is also the biggest wholesale market in the North. Today, although it has been expanded and spacious floors, it has still kept its original fa├žade architecture.

Dong Xuan Market played a historical part since it was used as a glorious defense system for the soldiers protecting Ha Noi from the French in 1946. It is open from 6am to 6pm everyday.
