In order to enhance activities to serve the people and attract tourists, the Department of Culture and Sports of Ho Chi Minh City has sent the City People’s Committee a proposal to organize street art performances on Nguyen Hue pedestrian street for the period of 2022-2025, starting from this month.

As a favorite destination of locals, as well as a place often chosen to organize major cultural events, but due to the Covid-19 epidemic spreading strongly in the city, street art performances at Nguyen Hue pedestrian street has been suspended since July 2020.

Accordingly, starting from August 2022, art performances will be periodically held every Saturday or Sunday at Nguyen Hue pedestrian street (in front of the Sun Wah building) and the intersection of Nguyen Hue – Ngo Duc Ke. In addition, when coming to Nguyen Hue pedestrian street, locals and visitors will enjoy special art programs from traditional arts, circus, magic and international art performances,…

In addition, the city will soon launch “Đêm huyền bí” (Mystery Night) tour in the near future, in order to bring unique experiences to visitors when visiting the tunnels under the Independence Palace, the Detention Area of Cho Quan Hospital and the Fine Arts Museum.

Earlier in July, in order to diversify cultural and artistic activities at night, the People’s Committee of District 5 held the performance of kylin and dragon dance called “Về Chợ Lớn xem múa lân” (Come to Big Market to watch kylin and dragon dance) from 5:30 a.m. to midnight. 20:00 on the second weekend of the month. The Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of District 5 hopes that the performance of kylin and dragon dance will become a unique traditional cultural event of the city besides traditional festivals, historical sites, iconic architecture and cultural identity that has attracted locals and foreign tourists before.

In the first seven months of the year, the city welcomed more than 14 million visitors, including more than 700,000 foreign visitors. According to the city’s Department of Tourism, tourism revenue is estimated at 60 trillion dong ($2.58 billion), up 57.8% over the same period last year.
