In early August, Tien Yen district put a walking street (including two blocks of Ly Thuong Kiet and Hoa Binh streets in Tien Yen town) into operation.

Since the launch, Tien Yen walking street have become a destination not only of Tien Yen people but also of neighboring provinces. Mr. Pham Hong Cu from Mong Duong ward, Cam Pha town said: "My wife and I went 30km here to try and enjoy free feeling of walking on the street. It's also a walk, but here we find ourselves safe in the street, not the car horn, not startled by the shouting behind. In general, we are comfortable striding without having to worry about traffic accidents. We can visit somewhere to enjoy street food."

During the days of the Culture and Sports week of ethnic groups in the Northeast, in the walking street of Tien Yen there are cultural activities, performances, sports such as Stick Push, walking on stilts, jumping rope, various types of weaving, knitting, painting, drinking tea, watching flowers, display pictures. Along with that is the food area with local products of Tien Yen such as Dong Rui potatoes, sea duck eggs from Dong Rui, Tien Yen honey...At the outdoor stage on the walking street, I met a Dzao woman, singing 2 songs although her Vietnamese language was still slightly unfluent, but she said, "I don't sing well however I still sing, if the stage is only for singers, how can it be called walking street anymore. The other game too, who wants to participate?"

Dinh Vien, Vice Chairman of Tien Yen Art and Culture Association, said: "It can be said that all Tien Yen people like the walking street, but if it only lasts in the culture week of the Northeast and then finish, it is regrettable. We artists are willing to do what we can in order to maintain the walking street. In my opinion, the walking street should be maintained under the theme of "Week of Children", "Week of the Youth", "Elderly Week"...I am an elderly person, "We can hold a chess game, first to unite the teams from Tien Yen and then exchange with other localities".

Talking with us, Nguyen The Nam, Chairman of Tien Yen Town People's Committee, said: "After the walking street, we noticed that walking street was not just walking, Other activities are also promoted and developed such as selling and consuming local products of Tien Yen district. Also from the walking street will develop better folk singing clubs, from children to old people find their own playground. Therefore, after the Culture and Sports Week of the Northeast, we still maintain the walking street on Saturday and Sunday nights. The town's functional units are willing to take part in the organization of the activity, and the town's Youth League maintains activities such as tug-of-war, push-sticks, jumping...The town has 6 folk singing clubs willing to join voluntarily. I think the Tien Yen walking street will be successful.".

Dear Mr. Huy Hoang
We had a wonderful amazing trip and will return as soon as we can afford it again. Thank you so much! I will write a great review on tripadvisor. Really the guides and hotels and tours were awesome. Ms. Nhung was very sweet and refreshingly honest, very likeable. Mr. Tam was fantastic, highly knowledgeable and funny. Probably our best "tour" was the day we spent on motor bikes visiting the tombs near Hue. The bikes allow for a much more intimate view of the countryside. And then - as I wrote - Mr. An was absolutely the best guide ever...Read more
