  • Ironwood pedestrian street being built in Hue

    A 380-metre ironwood pedestrian street is under construction along the banks of the Huong River, one of the most popular destinations in the former imperial city of Hue in central Thua Thien-Hue province, with sponsorship from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and connecting Nguyen Dinh Chieu pedestrian mall with Ly Tu Trong Park. Costing over VND60 billion ($2.6 million), the street will be accompanied by elegant designs of a port, a lotus pond, and a small square, among others. Its ironwood floor does not distort in hot and humid weather and is suitable with the city’s landscape, according to KOICA.

  • Better together

    Better together

    A leading player in Hue’s tourism sector is a firm believer in joint endeavours bringing greater benefits than individual endeavours.



    Authorities in the former imperial capital of Hue have given the green light to a plan to turn the backpacker area bordered by Pham Ngu Lao, Chu Van An, and Vo Thi Sau streets into a pedestrian-only precinct on weekend nights, in an effort to attract more foreign tourists and boost tourism development. Starting from late September, all vehicles will be banned from these streets every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from 6pm to 2am. Vendors and household businesses in the area will be reorganised and given training to improve sales and service skills. Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street along the Huong River was previously turned into a pedestrian mall.
