I lived in HCMC for 1 year and found some War-era memorabilia markets , wondering if Hanoi has to offer. I am quite interested in history (I will be visiting museums in Hanoi while there of course) and thus I was hoping to pick up a Vietnamese helmet or uniform or some such item
If someone knows of a good place to find such items in Hanoi and the surrounding areas (such as near museums perhaps? I don't know) then please let me know. Thanks in advance!
You can go along Le Duan Street (It is about 2,5km from The Old Quarter), you certainly find a lot of cloths, coats, shoes, hats, etc with the best price in Hanoi.
I guess its easy for you to find hats, cloths and everything you need everywhere in the Old Quarter . And there are many shops near Ha Noi railway station. But most of them selling reproduction. there ARE many Vietnam War shop near the station and down the street.
