More pedestrian streets open in Ha Noi Old Quarter
Update: Oct 06, 2014
The Hoan Kiem District’s People Committee on October 3 launched six more walking streets to serve tourists’ exploration of Ha Noi Old Quarter on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

The streets are Hang Buom, Ma May, Hang Giay, Luong Ngoc Quyen, Ta Hien and Dao Duy Tu streets, which are connected to the existing Hang Dao-Dong Xuan pedestrian road.

The six-street area is famous for many historical relics dating back to the 18 th -19 th century such as the temples of Bach Ma, Quan De and Huong Tuong together with houses of old architecture typical of Ha Noi.

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 traditional confectionery and beverage and some European and Asian dishes to visitors to the night market along the Hang Dao- Dong Xuan route.

Ha Noi Old Quarter was listed among the best 95 attractions in the capital in 2014 by the US’s premier travel website TripAdvisor.
