Riding through the old quarter of Hanoi City, Vietnam on a tricycle. Click here ▶ to see highlights and guide. (From wiki):The residential and commercial area that is now the Old Quarter came to be during the Lý and Trần dynasties and was then located east of the Imperial Citadel of Thăng Long and along the Red River. During the Lê dynasty, scholar Nguyễn Trãi already mentioned some of the areas each specialized in one particular trade. It was then surrounded by a defensive wall with several gates.During the Lý and Trần dynasties, many people from the surrounding plains migrated to the city and settled in what is now the Old Quarter, creating the densest urban area of the city. The Lê dynasty period saw an additional influx of Chinese immigrants who arrived to trade, creating several Chinese neighbourhoods..When the French ruled over Vietnam, they partially rebuilt the area. This period saw many French and Indians settling there to conduct business. Two small markets were demolished to make place for Đồng Xuân Market. Furthermore a tramway was constructed through the quarter.The area is still the commercial heart of Hanoi.Date recorded: November, 2019Weather: ☀️ 30C | 86F-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lets connect or support and receive updates of the travel places to be viewed in upcoming videos:Support me on【Paypal】https://www.paypal.me/WanderlustTVSupport me on【Patreon】https://www.patreon.com/Wander....lustTravelVideosFoll me on 【Instagram】https://www.instagram.com/wand....erlusttravelvideos/F me on 【Facebook】https://www.facebook.com/Wande....rlustTravelVideos/#W # #---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Highlights timestamps (☉ Street/Road | ★ Highlight): ▶(0:30) Đinh Tiên Hoàng ☉▶(0:55) Cầu Gỗ ☉▶(2:25) Ngõ Cầu Gỗ ☉▶(4:18) Hàng Bè ☉▶(5:20) Hàng Bạc ☉▶(5:59) Phố Mã Mây ☉▶(11:46) Hàng Buồm ☉▶(12:55) Hàng Đường ☉▶(13:40) Chùa Cầu Đông ★▶(14:40) Hàng Khoai ☉▶(17:18) Hàng Gà ☉▶(24:45) Đường Thành ☉▶(29:12) Ấu Triệu ☉▶(31:11) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Hanoi ★---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Gear I use to record and edit videos (use links to receive discount and I receive a small commission): GoPro Hero 8 Blackhttps://amzn.to/37B9h8pGoPro Hero 7 Black (backup)https://amzn.to/2SDzmQaFeiyu G6 Gimbal Stabilizerhttps://amzn.to/2P6wqt7GoPro Karma Grip https://amzn.to/2SG9gMdZoom H4N Recorderhttps://amzn.to/325s7UfSandisk 1T Portable SSDhttps://amzn.to/3bQdngjRavPower Travel Routerhttps://amzn.to/39KxafbGoPro Accessoire Travel Kithttps://amzn.to/2SGaLu8Techsmarter 30000mah Power Bankhttps://amzn.to/38Iif54Improve your YouTube channel with TubeTubbyhttps://www.Tubebuddy.com/WTVAffiliatePromotion
