Dong Xuan Market is one of the largest markets in Hanoi, Vietnam; is located at Hanoi’s old quarter. The market has a history dating back hundreds of years to the Nguyen Dynasty.
At the end of the 19th century, the Old Quarter of Hanoi had two main marketplaces, one at Hang Duong street and the other at Hang Ma street. In 1889, these two markets were closed and replaced by the original Dong Xuan Market which was built by the order of the French administration in 1889 as one of the principal new architectures of Hanoi, together with Long Bien Bridge which was located nearby and completed in 1902. The market was constructed in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, only 600 m north of Hoan Kiem Lake.
