About Cau Giay Street
Cau Giay Street is now part of Highway Route No. 32 from Hanoi to Son Tay. It is about 1.8 kilometres long from Kim Ma – La Thanh three-way crossroad to Nguyen Phong Sac – Xuan Thuy crossroad.
Its name derives from the name of Paper Bridge crossing To Lich River. A legend tells that Paper village was the focal point of the main arterial roads, running from West Gate to the northwest of the country. To facilitate the trade on this route, the Ly Dynasty built a large bridge. The bridge was opposite to West Gate, so it was named Tay Duong Bridge. The bridge was located on the area of Thuong Yen Quyet village – Paper village. The villagers often sold their products on the bridge. Therefore, it was also called Paper Bridge (Cau Giay).
Cau Giay Street is now the beginning point of Highway No. 32 connecting Hanoi with northwest provinces such as Phu Tho, Yen Bai, Lai Chau…Along the street are stores and shops which sell many items such as clothing, shoes, cosmetics, hats, eyeglasses, electronics, souvenirs…
