Was at this market today. They have electronics and toys at the bottom and handbags on the ground floor, with clothing on the next two floors up. It was a strange experience in that I was expecting a lot of the stall keepers to be annoying and shouting etc trying to sell stuff. I usually visit similar markets in Beijing and found that this market in Hanoi is quite different. The stall holders don't engage with you until you are ready to engage them and it's a much more reserved an quieter experience to Beijing. Haggling is still a definite. You can usually get 50% off what they ask of you. My only gripe is that they don't have a huge selection of "big name" imitation handbags. You could find them there but only a few stall holders did them. I paid about €17 for each one (having started out at €30) - It may sound too much to you experienced hagglers but I find Vietnam a lot cheaper than China which has gotten a lot more expensive in recent years. The Vietnamese sellers are also a lot easier to deal with. Best of luck in your shopping!
