Update: Mar 01, 2022
The former imperial city of Hue is anticipated to launch a range of diverse art and cultural activities from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays, starting in the second quarter of this year, in an effort to attract tourists.

The municipal administration expects to form cultural and art spaces at night to popularize Hue’s image, culture and people, as well as develop the nighttime economy.

The activities will take place on walking streets such as Pham Ngu Lao, Chu Van An, Vo Thi Sau, Nguyen Dinh Chieu, 3/2 Park, and Tu Tuong Park.

Other cultural activities will also be held at Bia Quoc Hoc (Quoc Hoc Monument), Thuong Bac Park, Nghinh Luong Dinh Stadium, Ban Nguyet bridge, Phu Xuan park, Dong Ba Night Market, the Night Street of the Hue Imperial Citadel and the walking area on the north bank of the Perfume River.

A wide range of activities will be organised at these places, including calligraphy arts, folk games, Hue chamber songs, as well as performances of traditional craft and traditional long dress (Ao Dai).

The city hopes to develop its nighttime economy through holding evening cultural activities to contribute to its own economic development, said Vo Le Nhat, chairman of the People's Committee of Hue City.
