HCMC – The Hanoi People’s Committee has announced the closure of the pedestrian spaces around Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter, allowing citizens to travel smoothly during the Tet holiday.

The walking zones around Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter will be closed from January 20 (the 29th of the final lunar month) and February 3 (the 13th of the first lunar month).

The local authority planned to organize various cultural and music programs to serve citizens and tourists.

Moreover, two fireworks displays will be held in front of the Hanoimoi Newspaper Office and the Hanoi Post Office to ring in the Lunar New Year (Tet).

For beautiful landscapes and a joyful atmosphere ahead of Tet, Hanoi City has decorated streets and public places with a variety of flowers, ornamental plants, and Tet symbols.

The cultural activities in the pedestrian zones around Hoan Kiem Lake were resumed in March 2022, after nearly a year of suspending due to the Covid-19 pandemic, to serve the entertainment demand.
