Foreign tourists visit a street food stall at a night market in Hanoi's Old Quarter, 2019.

Spanning three kilometers from Hang Dao Street to the gate of Dong Xuan Market, the market opens from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every weekend, and sells a variety of items ranging from clothes, toys and souvenirs to handicrafts and street food.

It opened in 2003 and has become a popular attraction for foreign tourists.

The website also said night markets in tourist towns such as Nha Trang, Ha Long, Hoi An, and Phu Quoc are worth exploring as they "offer a sea breeze and coastal scenery."

Some other countries in the list include India, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
