Hanoi Old Quarter pedestrian streets expanded

Starting from January 1st, 2021, many central streets and alleys have entered the map of Hoan Kiem weekend pedestrian zone. The names include Hand Dau, Cau Go, Hang Be, Hang Bac, Dinh Liet, Gia Ngu, Dao Duy Tu, O Quan Chuong, Trung Yen, and Phat Loc. To aid the tourists and also a part of Hanoians, at the beginning of time, signposts, barriers will be put up in important intersections and news will be spread across online platforms.

The walking streets still keep the original operation time on weekend nights, from 7 pm to midnight. Various activities are held and attraction sites are opened to increase the visit rate. O Quan Chuong will celebrate traditional music while Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square will organize modern concerts.

Moreover, the soul of Hanoi, the food corners can also widen up with myriad types of pavement delicacy, from a nightly hot bowl of Pho, a loaf of Banh mi, a bitter glass of coffee, to a cup of local craft beer.

The expansion can brace the city to meet the expected demands of in-recover tourism. Travelers are now secured with a larger space for cultural visiting, food tasting, and of course, shopping.
