The Ha Noi Old Quarter, locating in downtown in Hoan Kiem district, is the most popular destination in the capital city. Tourists come here to explore ancient streets, craft products, local food, or experience lives there. In the evening, the streets become more crowded and lively with Hang Dao – Dong Xuan nigh fair and outdoor music performances.

Since 2016, Ha Noi has allowed Hoan Kiem district to pilot the extension of opening hours of bars and restaurants to 2am. As a result, their revenues increased by about 30 percent.

Following the pilot, tourist arrivals in 2016 neared 1.4 million, up 22.8 percent from a year earlier. The figure went up to 1.95 million in 2017, nearly 2.2 million in 2018 and 2.5 million in 2019.
