Hanoi Adds Six Streets for Pedestrians

Six streets around Hanoi’s old quarter – Hang Buom, Hang Giay, Luong Ngoc Quyen, May May, Dao Duy Tu and Ta Hien – will become roads for pedestrians.



Hang Dao - Dong Xuan, the first street for pedestrians in Hanoi.

Hoan Kiem district authorities have submitted this project to Hanoi administration for approval. These streets are expected to open for pedestrians in late November or December, to connect with Hang Dao – Dong Xuan, which are already roads for walkers at weekend nights, to create a complete route for discovering Hanoi’s old quarters.

The roads for pedestrians will serve Hanoians and tourists three nights a week – Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 7pm in summer and 6pm in winter until 12pm.

Located in the first-class preservation zone of Hanoi’s old quarter, Hang Buom – Hang Giay – Luong Ngoc Quyen – Ma May – Dao Duy Tu – Ta Hien belong to Hang Buom and Hang Bac Wards, where host many architectural works of the 18th and 19th centuries and many cultural relics.

These streets are also the home for famous cuisines of Hanoi and Chinese Vietnamese. Therefore, many foreign tourists come here to enjoy food and learn about Hanoi’s old quarters.

Do Xuan Thuy, general director of Dong Xuan JS Company, who is in charge of the project, said that the area around Hanoi’s old quarter is appropriate to recover and develop Hanoi’s gastronomy because gastronomy is part of Hanoi’s culture.

According to a survey, of 159 shops on the six streets, 47 are restaurants. There are also 50 pavement shops on the evening. After walking and going shopping on Hang Dao-Dong Xuan roads, visitors can enjoy food at restaurants along the six streets.

Luong Ngoc Quyen and Ta Hien, where attract large numbers of foreign visitors, will have stalls that are similar as the “foreign market” in Quang An ward.

This action make opportunity for Vietnam travel agencies to develope more tours about Hanoi's old quarter.
