Antique shops in Hanoi


The rich history of Hanoi is a melting pot of Vietnamese, Chinese, and French culture. Where is the best place to see this interesting mix? An antique fair of course!

In this quick post, I just want to share a few shots we took at a small antique fair, which is within the Cho Hoa Tet or New Year Flower Market last week.

It was unplanned, we have no idea if the items are authentic or not. It’s just so much fun to make our ways around one shop to another, seeing things you usually only find in museums.

Here are some shots that we took:

You can see a the mixture of cultures and history in this very unorganized display shelf:

Sometimes, some of the best experiences on your travelling road is the free, unplanned ones!
