Bui Vien to become Ho Chi Minh city’s second walking street in July

Ho Chi Minh City’s famous Bui Vien Street, located in the heart of the city’s ‘backpacker area’, is set to become a pedestrian-only thoroughfare on weekend evenings starting from 15 July. The vice-chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, Tran Vinh Tuyen, stated that the pedestrian road will be active from 19:00hrs – 2:00hrs every Saturday and Sunday. To give visitors the opportunity to experience a more artistic side of Vietnam, performances will be held on two stages on weekend nights between 20:00hrs – 22:00hrs.
