New night market opens in ancient city; VNN

Viet Nam – Hoi An Ancient Town

The ancient city of Hội An has allocated some sections of four streets – Trần Quý Cáp, Bạch Đằng, Tiểu La and Hoàng Văn Thu – near Hội An market as a space for the third night market to serve tourists looking for shopping opportunities in the city.

Vice chairman of the city’s People’s Committee Nguyễn Văn Sơn said the night market with 56 pavilions will open daily from 6pm to 11pm.

He said the newly-launched night market will offer more shopping options for tourists at night, easing the crowding of tourists in the old quarters of the west side.

The city has previously launched two night markets – souvenir pavilions in Nguyễn Hoàng Street and cuisine corner along Công Nữ Ngọc Hoa street on the Hoài River bank.

Hội An, a UNESCO-recognised world heritage site, also allocated new pedestrian areas on streets of Trần Phú, Nguyễn Huệ (in front of Hội An market), Phan Châu Trinh, Công Nữ Ngọc Hoa and the Hoài River Square last year.
