Hanoi Book Street (Phố Sách)

Hanoi Book Street was established with the purpose of not only selling books but also providing a cultural space. This is the place used to introduce new books to readers and also let them explore the variety of books. In addition, here you also have the opportunity to meet and discuss about books with local and international authors.

Each book store on Hanoi Book Street is beautifully decorated. The street is only 200 meters long but it is well designed and built to look extremely spacious with greenery providing a peaceful atmosphere. In the middle of the street, there is a small venue to exchange activities where sometimes even small exhibitions are held.
