Authorities in Can Tho City will pilot a pedestrian street in Ninh Kieu District starting May 1 to give fillip to local tourism and night economy.

The pedestrian street on Hai Ba Trung Street along Ninh Kieu Wharf, a top tourist attraction in the Mekong Delta city, will open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Saturday, said Nguyen Ngoc Anh, vice chairman of Ninh Kieu District people’s committee.

Southern region-style music performances, folk games and cultural shows would be staged along the street, apart from shopping and dining opportunities.

The street is part of a plan approved by city authorities last February to pilot night-time services in Ninh Kieu District.

Can Tho, home to Cai Rang floating market, the biggest of its kind in the Mekong Delta where trading along waterways has been a way of life for generations, has emerged as a popular tourist destination.

In July 2020, the government approved a master plan for night-time economy development in the country, allowing major tourist destinations like Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hoi An, Hue, Da Lat and Phu Quoc to pilot night-time services from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Hanoi, HCMC, Quang Ninh, Hue and Hoi An are among those now piloting such services.
