At 10 p.m. on March 16, Ta Hien street was still noisy with music, people laughing and talking happily at drinking tables along the street. Ha Manh Long, 42, a restaurant owner here said he was delighted to see the bustling scene once again, but has long been overshadowed by the pandemic.
“I’m still feeling light-headed. The new regulation is like a “miracle” that revives the whole street. When the shop is only sold until 9pm, the street is very empty. Guests near and far do not want to come because usually around 9 pm people can move here to eat and drink. But now it’s crowded and bustling again, I’m very happy.”Mr. Long said.
According to Mr. Long, the number of visitors to Ta Hien in the evening is not as crowded as before the epidemic, but every restaurant has regular customers, no longer a stagnant scene. That is enough for Mr. Long and the sellers here to be excited because they see positive signs of economic recovery.

Another shop owner happily said:The new regulation is a necessary move when Vietnam reopens to international tourists. Because foreign tourists come to Vietnam, but at 9 pm there is no place to eat or play, what is a travel?“.
Similarly, on Tong Duy Tan food street, many tables along the street are still crowded after 9pm.
Restaurants operate at night in Tong Duy Tan.
Mr. Nguyen Minh Phung, 43 years old, owner of a restaurant shared: “Before 9pm, the number of customers was normal as usual, and after 9pm, my shop received 2 more tables. People are still used to the old way of life, so the number of visitors is not too crowded. But it’s better than being banned like this.”.
Both the owner and staff happily serve guests until late at night.
Along with the food stalls, the coffee shops here are even busier. Many customers who visited Xofa coffee shop had to look elsewhere when the staff told them that the tables were full. This employee said, from 9pm, the shop was full of customers and there was not an empty table. Some latecomers had to leave while some customers tried to wait until a seat was available.
At Tong Duy Tan, many cafes are full from 9 pm while customers are still constantly coming.
Similarly, a series of motorbikes were lined up in front of Puku cafe at 9:30 pm. Mr. Dao Xuan Truong, manager of the restaurant, said that the number of customers after 9pm was much larger than the number of customers before 9pm. At about 23:30, customers continued to come to the shop and mainly young people.
