Situated close to the Southwest of Hanoi West Lake, Buoi Market features on many fancy plants. In spite of the urbanization, the market still maintains antique beauty. This is one of the oldest and most famous markets drawing lots of people to come.
Flower Market at Hoang Hoa Tham Street built on the land of many ancient villages is the meeting point of bonsai lovers. There are hundreds of shops and local vendors supplying a variety of lovely seasonal flowers and bonsai grown in their own gardens, so the price is reasonable.
Interestingly, Hanoi train streets are small alleys in the center of the city. Instead of being regular resident roads packed with cars and motorbike, they have high-speed railway tracks running throughout. The train street is the absolute highlight to go deeper into Hanoi local lives.
