According to a consulting unit, the pedestrian street will cover nearly 3.3 hectares of land with a total investment capital of around VND40 billion.
It will feature both permanent and mobile stalls showcasing street food, souvenirs, clothes and handicraft items. In addition, there will be an art performance space, an event hall, and a playground area for kids.
The sidewalks, which are located in the east side of Bach Dang Street, will be selected to become a pedestrian street for sightseeing whilst pavilions will be put along the road to avoid blocking the view of the Han River.
Previously, the city’s Department of Tourism had submitted plans for establishing a pedestrian street and night market on Hung Vuong Street. However, the city’s People Committee have yet to approve and have asked for other options in the areas of Hai Chau and Son Tra.
