When the Bui Vien walking street is complete, visitors will get 4 free services including: toilet, WiFi, tourist information support and “free smile”. Many cultural and artistic activities at the weekend are a special feature of this project.

Luong Trung Nghia, a businessman at Tay Bui Vien Street, said: “People are very much looking forward to this project. Despite the dusty construction but seeing the results in the near future so bright everyone is eager. In particular, it will contribute to change the face of tourism of the city.

Herkell, a visitor from Australia, said: “Heavy traffic is a hallmark of HCMC. However, the pedestrian street project is still very interesting because it will be safe for tourists and the activities are very good. ”
