I don’t read as much as I wish, but I always love visiting bookshops because of the atmosphere and I just love looking around exploring new books. And I found a small street nearby Hoan Kiem lake called Đinh Lễ with several bookstores. The book street is walking distance from any hotel if you’re staying in the Old Quarter of Hanoi.
They mostly sell Vietnamese books, but also have some English books. Whether you just finished reading the book that you brought with you or if you’re someone like me who likes the visit itself, I recommend a visit to this street.
There is also a small book market open inside the post office across the street where bookstores are. Be sure to go in and check this market out too for some books on sale.
Address: Đinh Lễ, Tràng Tiền, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
