Vietnam needs to tap the potential of train street cafes

 Tuesday, March 21, 2023 


In Thailand, there is a popular market just next to the Mae Klong Railway Station, which is a famous attraction. Vietnam needs to implement a measure similar to that.

For the last few months, the Hanoi People’s Committee has created barriers to stop people and tourists from shooting, capturing photos, and drinking coffee alongside the train tracks running along Tran Phu Street. Nevertheless, few coffee shops are open there to greet visitors in spite of the prohibition.

However, prohibition is not essentially the best decision. The city needs to implement definite guidelines on the speed of trains and publicly show the weekly train timetable, with the intention of making people and tourists know and design their undertakings to evade danger. This tactic will deliver tourists with more exciting experiences and create more earnings for people.

In Thailand, there is a market next to the train track, which delivers an exclusive understanding for visitors.

They have been running the same for decades without having to face any problem. Vietnam needs to pick up from their experience. In effect, sitting and sipping coffee close to the train line when everyone is acquainted with the train time beforehand is not dangerous compared to eating and drinking on the footpath close to the roadway, where there is constant movement of vehicles.
