At night you can see traditional art performances like Cheo or Xam at open musical theatres in the Old Quarter of Ha Noi. You can also buy, try and learn to cook traditional food. For some foreign tourists, it's a special, memorable experience. But some others find them overcrowded, messy and noisy.
Recently, HCM City introduced a walking street on Nguyen Hue. Cameras have been set up and disguised policemen are on patrol to prevent pickpocketing, protect the historic sites and keep people safe.
