Hanoi authorities have tried to shut down the cafes along the railway due to safety concerns since October 2019. However, four months later, many people continue to go to the railway to take photos and cafe shops are still open.

Hoan Kiem District police asked tour agencies in the city to continue finding solutions to ensure the rail corridor and tourist safety. They must also ask tourists to not go there and notify them about the city authorities’ shutdown decision.

Colonel Bui Van Dang, deputy head of Hoan Kiem Police Department, said, “After the shutdown decision, several cafe shops still open and tour agencies still bring tourists there.”

Dang confirmed that they would work with all tour agencies to explain to tourists.

 

Pham Tuan Long, vice chairman of Hoan Kiem People’s Committee, said, “We’ll continue promoting the decision and railway safety to everyone. We’ll manage this area better so that there will be no one taking selfies or sitting on the train track.”
