HCM CITY - A 465-meter-long night-time walking street spanning a section of Xuân Thủy Street in Thảo Điền Ward, an expat enclave, opened last weekend.

The night walking street initiative will undergo a six-month trial period, running from January 19 to July 19, 2024, with operational funds sourced from social contributions.

The night walking street will be open every Friday and Saturday from 7 pm to 2 am.

Apart from eateries and stores lining the night street, art performances and music shows will be held there to treat revelers.

Within this vibrant area, numerous advantageous features include the Thảo Điền Market and a riverside park located at the base of the Saigon Bridge.

Additionally, there are plans to launch a river bus route in this vicinity in 2024, enhancing favorable conditions for waterway transportation.

This area is also targeted by the local authorities for promoting the growth of the night economy.

​The night walking street is expected to help promote the local culture, tourism, trade, and satisfy the needs of the locals and visitors for evening entertainment and shopping.

The launch of this night walking street will give a significant boost to the local night-time economic growth, one of the key strategies adopted by HCM City to develop its tourism industry.

The People's Committee of Thao Dien Ward will establish the Thao Dien Night Street Management Board and provide free electric vehicle services to meet the transportation needs of both tourists and locals who come to visit and enjoy the activities in the area. VNS
