Sight­see­ing/Life­style

LUXE City Guides - Hanoi - - Nguyen Thai Hoc -

Note that some of th­ese shops will be closed on Sun­days. Start early at the Tem­ple of Lit­er­a­ture (see Ac­tiv­i­ties) to avoid irk­some crowds. When you exit, turn left and left again into Van Mieu. First up at #59 is char­i­ta­ble Koto (see Lunch); Craft Link at #43 / 3733 6101 / craftlink.com.vn / is an ex­cel­lent non-profit shop with some ter­rific lacquer, silk and embroidered faff and fash; and Mi­moza at #33a / 3747 8732 / has pretty life­style this n’ that. Carry on up Van Mieu and you’ll hit Nguyen Thai Hoc, with the Fine Arts Mu­seum (see Art) just across from you. Go on, pop in for a peek. If not, turn right into busy Nguyen Thai Hoc and con­tinue skip­ping along 350m, be­fore mak­ing an­other right into Yen The. Pick up a bot­tle of vino from Cel­liers d’Asie at #18 / 3747 4889 / for post-shop guz­zling, and Dome at #10 / 3843 6036 / dome.com.vn / is a top spot for furny. Pop back up to the main Nguyen Thai Hoc road for vi­brant Khaisilk at #26 / (see Shop./Hang Gai) / with some good ac­ces­sories that’s worth a gan­der. All done, wasn’t that short and sweet.
