Night Market Long Bien

Last week has been full of different events. Starting with a whole day at the German Day with a great show from the band Raggabund to the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU-132) where we had as well some German parliamentarians. 

 

Today, let me take you on a walk at the Night Market near Long Bien Bridge, taking place every day, starting about 11pm. This market is mentioned on travel guides and blogs and it is worth visiting. 

 

I really like this night market for its balanced mix of food and I always enjoy strolling through it. It has a reasonable size and you can be pack up in about 40 minutes depending on if you linger at some stands or not. There are a lot of people and traffic craziness especially in the beginning. It has a nevertheless a pleasant atmosphere.

 

I walked this special night shooting not only with the usual bunch of the Hanoi Photo Club but had to take care as well of three parliamentarians which where quite impressed by the extent and colourful experience they had. I think everyone of the Photo Club participating had a good time as well.
