So, here we’ve summed up 8 places to buy Christmas decorations in Hanoi with local-flavored Christmas trees, Christmas costumes, and cute accessories for you to bring the holiday spirit to your home.

For decades, Hàng Mã Street in Hanoi’s iconic Old Quarter has been the city residents’ go-to place whenever they want to buy decorations, be they for traditional festivals such as Tết or Mid-Autumn Festival, or newer celebrations such as Halloween and of course, Christmas.

The street is home to dozens of shops and stalls offering all sorts of toys and ornaments all year round, but visit from mid-November onward, and you’ll see them stocked up with a plethora of Christmas decorations to suit your needs.
