The best thing about wandering around in the Old Quarter is that there is a surprise around every corner. The Old City Gate is one of those sights. On the northern part of the Old Quarter, past the beauty supply stores and endless shops selling booze and cigarettes, here is this ancient stone wall. On one side is the Old Quarter, and on the other, there is modern Hanoi. It may not be worth a special trip in itself, but when you happen to see it, it's definitely an "oh wow" sort of thing. What really makes the Old Quarter so special, though, is that there are little surprises like this all over this part of town. You just can't "see" the Old Quarter in a few hours - it's something to be experienced and savored over time.
