Hai Ba Trung Pedestrian Street has a length of 850m. Its construction was started in September 2022, with a total investment of nearly 97 billion VND.

Speaking at the ceremony, Chairman of the Hue City People’s Committee Vo Le Nhat said that Hai Ba Trung Pedestrian Street is held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening.

The city’s third pedestrian street is expected to create an open space, a new destination and effectively exploit the potential and strengths of Hue's cultural and culinary values to attract tourists. At the same time, it will create conditions for business establishments to access the consumption market, expand their scale, create economic benefits for the population community, and create jobs for workers.

At Hai Ba Trung Pedestrian Street, residents and visitors will have the opportunity to explore, exchange cultural activities, enjoy local cuisine, entertainment and shopping. This activity contributes to promoting tourism, services and trade development in Hue city.

Currently, in Hue city, there are 3 pedestrian streets: Pham Ngu Lao-Chu Van An-Vo Thi Sau (Western Quarter), Hue Imperial Citadel night street and Hai Ba Trung street. The streets initially formed a number of attractive night tourism products to continue to realize the goal of turning Hue City into a dynamic, interesting and unique nightlife destination.

Right after the opening ceremony, a festival to welcome summer in Hue opened with a colorful carnival program. This is the starting activity for a series of festivals and events of the provincial tourism industry in 2023 and responding to Hue Festival 2023./.
