Where to Buy Wine in Hanoi

Like people in most parts of the world, Vietnamese hardly turn down an invitation to have a good time, sharing their stories while taking shots of alcohol. That cheerful spirit is best presented in the country’s capital city, Hanoi, which has a unique drinking culture. Alcoholic beverages are sold on literally every street corner, but here are the best in the business when it comes to where to buy wine in Hanoi!

  • No, you don’t need to show your ID when buying alcohol in Vietnam
  • No, Vietnam does not impose a time limit on when you can purchase wine, just go when the stores are still open
  • However, public disturbances and driving under the influence are punishable offenses in Vietnam, so drink responsibly
  • Some supermarkets think you might (and are able to) steal their wine, so they make you purchase the bottles as soon as you have them in your hand. Therefore, do your shopping for drinking snacks and other necessities before picking out your drink.
  • Supermarkets and convenience stores carry cheaper, run-of-the-mill brands, while specialized liquor stores offer more options. However, beware that independent stores might sell fake wine, so make sure to only shop at big and reputable brands.

Where to Buy Wine in Hanoi: Supermarkets
