While finding prayer facilities at the Hanoi Night Market will not be possible, the only known mosque in the city of Hanoi is located in the city’s Old Quarter; which is where the market is located. Muslims requiring prayer facilities while at the market can therefore ask locals to direct them to this mosque when needed.
As mentioned above, the Hanoi Night Market has a plethora of restaurants and food stalls serving an array of popular local dishes and delicacies. Most of these dining establishments will however not be Halal certified. Muslim tourists can therefore either ask to be guided to a Halal outlet, or they can dine on suitable vegetarian and seafood dishes after ensuring non-Halal items were not used in these dishes.
