Six pedestrian streets open in Hanoi’s Old Quarter
Hoan Kiem District launched six more walking streets to serve tourists in the Old Quarter on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
The streets included are: Hang Buom, Ma May, Hang Giay, Luong Ngoc Quyen, Ta Hien and, Dao Duy Tu − all connected to the existing Hang Dao-Dong Xuan pedestrian road.
The six-street area is famous for many historical relics dating back to the 18th -19th century, including the temples of Bach Ma, Quan De, and Huong Tuong, together with houses of old architecture typical of Hanoi.
Along the streets, performances of traditional music ‘hat xam’ (minstrel songs), ‘chau van’ (spiritual singing), and ‘ca tru’ (ceremonial singing), as well as jazz, will be organised.
Last month, the 300m long Hang Buom Street was also made a cuisine street, serving Hanoi’s traditional confectionery and beverage and European and Asian dishes to visitors of the night market along the Hang Dao- Dong Xuan route.
Hanoi’s Old Quarter was listed among the top 95 attractions in the capital in 2014 by the US ’s premier travel website TripAdvisor.
