One of the longest streets in the Old Quarter, Hàng Bông leads Hoan Kiem Lake to the South Gate of the city (Cua Nam). Hang Bong means Store of Cotton, yet no historical record found any association of the street with cottom production. During the French colonial period, the street hosts a number of publishing house and bookstore. Nowadays, Hang Bong is home to many different businesses. At one end it focuses on bridal products and at the other, it has tailors making banners and flags. At night, Hang Bong is the gathering place for many Vietnamese Youth for specialties such as Nem chua ran (fried pork roll) or Hoa qua dam (Fruit salad with condensed coconut milk).
