    I plan to buy some hand made clothing for my wife. Does anyone know of a reliable tailor and a place to buy silk cotton and rayon?

    Cheers

    I've had things made beautifully at Hadong silk in Hang Gai and they sell beautiful fabric too. It's quite expensive though (well, for Vietnam).

    Having never been to Hanoi, is there any way you could give me more specific directions.

    Thanks

    You can see Hang Gai just to the top left of the lake on this map.

    If you walk along Hang Gai, away from the lake, on the right side of the road, you will come to Hadong silk. It's quite a smart looking place. No 102 apparently.

    I like the back rooms because they are quiet. I found the people very obliging. I wanted a room with a balcony (same price I think) but found the one on the first floor rather noisy and the light from the neon sign kept me awake. They moved all my stuff for me back to the second floor back room. I suspect the second floor or above is quieter. I think I paid $11 a night because I stayed more than a week. Can't remember the room numbers.

    Hope you like the hotel. I only ever saw one other lot of European travellers in the 5 weeks I was there. It's convenient and if you go one way along the street you reach the tourist area but if you go the other you reach an ordinary Vietnamese street that feels completely non touristy. You can catch the nearby no 2 bus to a lot of useful destinations. Have a great time.
