Ho Chi Minh City issued law prohibiting pets on walking street

A list of what you can and what you cannot do at Nguyen Hue Street, the street which is for pedestrians only has just been issued by Ho Chi Minh City government. What seems quite strange is that there is also a rule says no pets on the street.

The government also forbids inline skating, selling coffee and having picnic on the walking treet.

This 19.7 million USD walking street is a brand new tourist site in Ho Chi Minh City. The street was open to the public on April 29th this year as an event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the end of war.

In order to celebrate the 125th birthday of President Ho Chi Minh, the most beloved President of Vietnam, a statue of him was placed on the street on May 17th.

There are 160 wooden benches have been set up along the street. All of the benches were made of the wood from the centuries – old trees in front of Saigon Opera House. Last July, these trees were cut down for the construction of the new subway station.

The city has welcomed more than 2 million international visits in the first half of this year. Most of the tourists are from South Korea,ASEAN countries, Japan, and the USA.
