Hoi An reopens pedestrian streets and craft villages

The ancient city of Hoi An, home to one of the nation’s most famous UNESCO world heritage sites, has reopened its pedestrian streets, night streets, and craft villages following several months of closure due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic and flooding.

The move to reopen various sites will see tickets to Hoi An Ancient Town halved between now and the end of June, 2021.

Tourist sites, entertainment centres, hotels, and restaurants, are also offering a range of promotional schemes aimed at luring more visitors to the town.

A broad array of art performances and special events will take place to mark Vietnam Heritage Day, with the majority of these being held on pedestrian streets at night, she said, adding that this will help local households to resume their businesses./.
