The market will include over 100 stalls of handicrafts and local delicacies; some 20 stalls selling flowers, fruits and drinks; and eight food stalls.

The market will open between 6pm and 5am every day.

The authorities will install more lights and decorate the area with traditional lanterns, bonsai and flowers. The main gate will be on Tran Hung Dao Street.

Phan Ngoc Tho, chairman of the province’s People’s Committee, has asked the committee and concerned agencies to clear the area and open the market soon to create a recreational space for locals and tourists at night.

At present, the area has nearly 60 households selling souvernirs, drinks and delicacies between 6am and 7pm every day. The environment around Dong Ba Bus Station has been seriously polluted with rubbish from the market and nearby residents.

Local authorities hope that with the new night market, the environment will be better preserved and the area will become a highlight for tourists at night.

Thọ said handicraft goods offered at the night market should have trademarks of famed producers in Hue so that tourists will have special memories of the city.
