The municipal People’s Committee said the space around Sword Lake and neighbouring areas as well as pedestrian streets in the Old Quarter will be available from 7 p.m. on Dec. 29 to midnight on Jan. 1, 2024, instead of only the weekend as usual.

The extension aims to facilitate visitors’ recreation demand during the holiday, according to Pham Tuan Long, Chairman of the district People’s Committee.

The pedestrian space welcomes an average of 20,000-27,000 visitors on weekend, and even 40,000 during holidays.
