Hanoi’s ‘Train Street’ cautiously reopens to tourists
Nearly three years after authorities shuttered cafés along Hanoi’s famous “Train Street” and banned selfie-snapping tourists from visiting, vendors have cautiously returned in recent months. The approval of its reopening comes as Hanoi’s municipal government and other authorities seek to boost and promote local tourism again since the border closing throughout the pandemic. The 50-metre tourist attraction, which crosses the Dien Bien Phu Road at one end and the Tran Phu Road, is lined with residential buildings, many of which have been converted to cafes, bars, and souvenir shops.
