Walking Tour of Sỹ Liên Market in Hanoi 2018 | VIETNAM WALK
Good afternoon everyone it's Cory here I am in Hanoi right. By the train tracks you, can see behind me a lot of traffic plus, the railway crossing. Today, I'm gonna be doing a walking, tour of the sealian. Market, this is a local, market very close to my house. Sometimes. My girlfriend and I we go shopping there for our produce and meat and so, it's a very bustling, kind. Of small, market. And I, definitely wanted to share that with you guys if you're looking for Google, Maps on how to get to this market, just check the description box down below don't. Forget to like this video and subscribe let's. Go first, of all here we're on the northern, side of the, Hanoi railway, station, you can see this blue gate right. Now it's closed because there's no train coming but, if you haven't seen my train Street video check it out here or look in the description box, for the, two links it'll tell you how to get to this specific, spot and, you can watch the train and stuff but, we're gonna go this, way. This, is just a quick walk from my house it's only uh I, don't. Know not even ten minutes walking, time my motorbike it's like not even two minutes super. Close, but, right now it's about 11:30. A.m., Friday. And you. Can see lunchtime. Is starting to kick off everyone's, heading. Out, going. For lunch traffic's picking up and, I think that's the best time to go explore, the CDN, market, because. It's just gonna be hectic guys just wait. It's. Gonna be very narrow there's gonna be motorcycles. Zooming around, honking. People. Everywhere. So. Along the way we have some shops these, are selling all meat grinders, and motors. And other, kind of things like that. Like, hardware. So I've been meaning to make a video about this for the last month but it's been raining almost every single day around lunchtime. And so, today. It looks like it might rain in a little bit but at least it's. Dry right now and, that. Way I can show. You guys what this market actually looks like without. Having to hold an umbrella and film. So this is the entrance of, the. Market. It still, looks a little tame right now in, the morning it's crazy and then around, lunchtime it's really crazy but. They sell all. Kinds of, stuff. Over. There is the Hanoi railway, station, you can't see it because of the tree but. We're right behind, it so it's very close, to the old quarter and. Yeah. This is gonna be cool guys let's, take a look at what they're selling here. And some avocados. Some. Good greens here. Mangosteen. Oh I, can smell this jackfruit. Oh. Smells. Very sweet. We, got pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds. And even dried. Sleeping, these. Are good snacks. Little. Munchy snacks. Ever. Check out this street you could see all the, buildings. And wires and stuff. Yeah. I just got hit from behind Thanks. No. Apologies, from, this lady she, literally rammed my calf. This. Green, one that's, actually just an orange a regular orange it's. A hybrid orange found, here in Southeast Asia. That. Kind of threw me off when I first moved here cuz I was like where all the oranges, I didn't realize that the green one is the orange it. Then, the inside it's orange and it tastes just like an orange, just. The outside was confusing, very. Noisy. Right now. Shallots. Ginger. Bellend. And. Here, we have a local butcher. Is. How they do in Vietnam, just. Unrefrigerated. Neat. But. It's all fresh it's from, today.
Yeah. So there's this alley that. We're walking through and then, this yellow, building here is like, an actual market, building we'll go through there too and. Scope it out. Check, out this fish. It's like snakehead fish, now. This one's the snakehead fish you. Can see that. Patterns, on the. Scales, there looks like a snake. Nice and job. Very. Curious, guy looking. At my GoPro. What. Do we got over here. Squid. Octopus. Some, fronds. Got a watch where you go here stay don't get crushed by, motorcycle. Wow, look at this crap was, it interesting a, pattern. On it it's, like stripes. In, this market they're really not. Famous but like well-known for. Bouton's. Ha. Mr.. Boon rice, noodles, with Todd's, the grilled pork. Like. Patties. Motorcycles. So I'll show you what I'm talking about in a second here. See, what they got over here porn. This, is a ping pong it's. Like fried little, like. Crispy. Little things with shrimp, on it. Or fried goods. And unfortunately, yes, this is. Dog ticket, see there's dog, intestines. And the body and the heads and stuff. That. Is a thing, here in Vietnam these, are pickled like. Mustard greens and other things these are nice that's. Kind of like a palate, cleanser they're, eating like. Greasy meaty. Fatty foods I. Like. It I like, it with rice and pork. I like, these ladies selling a fruit. Over here, just. Try not to die. Little, tiny pineapples. Lots, of, produce. So. This is a good place for. Locals. To come and buy all their produce and stuff they, don't have to go all the way to dumb, salon market or a different market. They. Can get all that stuff right here so this is definitely a neighborhood, market. And, this is what I was talking about that winter. Since job. See there. It is really really hot, not. Hot. No. No yeah. Yeah. Oh here, you can see this is the pork with. The betel leaf on it yeah, oh oh, no. Mwah. Yeah. This, is really good so she's grilling this up and then there's I don't know which restaurant she works for but. I, want. To say it's this one right here. People. Will line up I'm surprised there's no line here. But. This place is really famous. They do all the stuff. For Boonton Todd you can get it to go bring us your office, take it home. There's, always a line here I'm surprised there's no line the one day I come here to to, not buy it there's no line. Yes so in this video I'm not gonna be eating anything this is just a walk and talk kind. Of a thing you know how I do when. I'm walking and talking, I don't really have time to eat let, you sit down and eat. We got some hairs and, a long, gun what. And this, is, Ramadan. It's. Kind of like light, tea. Whoa, check. Out this alley I want to actually go in this alley. If you're new to the channel and you're new to my walking videos I, started. Off doing this kind of stuff like. Ali ex-football. These buildings are touching. Ali. Exploration. Check. This out. This. Goes right into all, the residences. These. Are all apartment, buildings. Anyway. We're, gonna go back out check. Out the market and. Then go into the building market. Space. You can see there's, a dragon fruit right there. Love. The mangosteen. It's. Really good there's.
Some Bamboo bamboo. Shoots, and there, just happens to be a parrot, I don't if you could see that but there's a parrot chillin, over there. Yeah, this is the market space that we're gonna go into but I'm. Gonna just just, go down here just a little bit and then loop back on the, other side of the street. Look, at all this. Just, let you guys know while I'm filming this, I am completely. Sweaty, I probably. Can't see it I am sweating, like a mofo more. Dog. The, market it goes down that way just a little bit to the end of the street and that's it, you'll find more flowers, and, fruit. Vendor ladies on bicycles. Down there it just kind of parked on the side but. We're gonna turn around and, go back this way we. Go into that market gotta, go deep deep, into the market. Now, I do have to say this about, this market it is a little, bit scamming. A. Lot. Of people make up prices, and then change it. After. Weighing when, they realize they could get more money for like, per kilogram, or whatever and, then they modify the price and stuff and they even do that to Vietnamese, people so, it's. Kind. Of scamming not. Too bad I mean I shop here it's just you got to bring. Someone that's Vietnamese with you which. I do I, bring my girlfriend. All. Right going in. This. Is kind of more of like a wet market space, the. Concrete's, all wet because they hose it down and then the water gets dragged everywhere. We. Got different kinds of beans. More beef. And, then here's the, neat corridor, let's just walk right down the middle of the neat corridor. See, cows tongue, ribs. All. Different types of cuts. With. The liver. There's. A hearts. These, are good for boiling making. A soup stock. Yes, you, can see it's just like a small little interior space that has it covered. Just. Chopping up looks, like chicken. Turn. You back this way. This, way connects back out to the street where I first started on. This. Lady looks like she has the life, laying. On a bag of rice with a fan on her. It's awesome. That's. It for this market I'm, gonna go out and kind of show you guys you. Know this is a nice little stop through if you're visiting Hanoi and you want to just see what like a local market looks like that's, not in the old holder and. Not. Have to travel too far. And. If. You are on the way to the temple of litterature. This. Market is on the way I'll show you guys. Oh yeah, here's more of the market I forgot okay let's take a look yeah. This is the non-food, stuff. Clothing. Very. Sparkly, fabrics. A. Lot. Of the vendor shops are closed. Now. While I'm plumbing this I don't really know much, about this, market like I don't know when it was established I don't know the hours of operation, but. If you are curious about that by. The time this videos up. That. Information, will be in the description, box down below. So. Check it out. It's. Nice and cool in here there's. A breeze coming through here this is great. Dried. Fruit. There's. More dried goods. Noodles. Sugar, salt. It's. Cool this the shop itself, is like really tiny. Let's. Keep going straight. To. The other corridor. And. Then go back out. What's, this I tried mushrooms. Looks. Like dried bamboo. Yeah. I tried bamboo. There's. Like a hair salon being built here. Candied, fruits oh I see some plums and cherries. I'm. Sorry those aren't cherries, there's. Like cranberries. Tsingtao. You. Wonder my money got. Here iswe beans. We, got a shoe, repair shop here. Smells, like a leather alright, so we're back to, where I first came into the market building. Now. Let's head out to this road. And. I'll show you guys what I'm talking about. For. The temple of litterature. So, as. I mentioned earlier you could definitely just hit this up pass, through this market you know ten minutes fifteen minutes tops just.
Say You've seen it maybe pick up some stuff. And then this road it kind of goes like left right left right and then it just takes you directly to, the temple of litterature so. It's a good option for. You. Know checking out the train Street and then continuing, into, the temple, of litterature. So, if you guys are looking for the full Vietnamese experience. This is it and. I did want to mention that I noticed sounds weird but like I did. Not see any tourists, at, all. And nothing any foreigners, everyone. Looked to be enemies to me. So, if you keep walking down the street. There's this cool. Temple. Over here. On. This guy's just chillin in a hammock that's. How you do it lunchtime, siesta. I got this tree and this rock formation, that they built is kind of like a gate. He's right into this courtyard. Wow. That. Old stone, horse. You. Got some neat porcelain. Ceramic. Statues. Of different, deities. So, quiet thing here it's really nice. Yeah. Imagine. Living like right there, and your view, is a temple, that's. So cool although. I can imagine during like holidays, and stuff like Tet. It's, just gonna be so loud so many people all the time. But. Right now it's nice. Very. Serene. Cool. So, they had this archway but all the stones but, cut, the barbed wire all over it it looks ridiculous. Okay so if you keep walking down you. See as I mentioned earlier the road just kind of goes left right left right like a zigzag but. If you just stay on this road and. Zigzag with it. It's. Gonna take you race. Couple, of literature. Here's, another blue top place, see, all the smoke and the grilling action oh my god it smells so, good. Then, it is so hot. Oh. Props, to them for sitting in that everyday in. The hot summer, heat of Vietnam. My, dad. So this is it now. This road if you could just go straight just one block one, city block it, takes you right to the Temple of Literature. So. You can see just right back there is the temple of litterature, so it's just a nice little walk through that market, and, it pops you out right here you, want the Google Maps check it out in the description box down below all. The info about the market itself is also going to be there make, sure you guys subscribe like. The video and I, will, see you in the next video bye.
