Nguyen Phuong Hai from Hoan Kiem District said train street was less exciting than before because people have to follow traffic safety regulations.

 Nguyen Thi Nguyet, owner of a coffee shop, on the street said more customers had visited her shop at the weekend, including foreigners.

 Séni Van Hauwaert, a tourist from Belgium, said that whenever she visits Vietnam, she comes to the train street to enjoy coffee.

 These unique coffee shops have not only created jobs for many people but also become a must-visit spot in Hanoi.

The two-kilometre “Train street” starts from Le Duan, goes through Tran Phu and Cua Dong and ends at Phung Hung Street.

In October 2019, all the coffee shops along the railway line were shut to ensure traffic safety.

In order to reopen, the coffee shops have to pledge to conform to railway safety regulations, meaning that they can only operate indoor services.


More visitors have returned to the street as the Covid-19 pandemic has been brought under control in Hanoi.
