Yen Phu Street is a street that runs through the old Yen Phu village. When it was built, it has the original name of Cai Street (Main Street). Now, it belongs to Tay Ho district. It is 1.472 meters from one bottom of Thanh Nien Street to Hang Dau Street.

Yen Phu Street is a two-way street; there are houses only on one roadside, the other side is Yen Phu Dyke. Previously the street was quite deserted but now, there are many multistage houses and restaurants which make the street livelier. Located at the root of the Long Bien Bridge is Long Bien market – the clue market of farm produce. The great animation and density of this market from night to dawn has become a typical figure of Yen Phu Street.

The most special feature of this street is absolutely “The Ceramic Road” which was made as a celebration of the capital’s 1000th birth day in 10th October 2010. The section named “Vietnam’s patterns in the historical flow” on this road was recognized by The Guiness Book of World Records as the world’s biggest mosaic painting. This section from An Duong Terminal to Tan Ap Terminal on Yen Phu Street is 810 meters long and 1.570 square meter wide.

An outstanding place on the street is Sofitel Hotel at No. 42. This is one of the most luxurious hotels in Hanoi. Besides you can find many nice coffee houses and tea houses which are ideal meeting-places for you and your friends.
