ĐÀ NẴNG — The central city of Đà Nẵng will pilot the Mỹ An Night Beach project in the coastal living quarter of Mỹ An of Ngũ Hành Sơn District from April.
Head of the city’s Sơn Trà peninsula and tourism beach management board Nguyễn Đức Vũ said the night beach zone would be bounded by four main streets – Võ Nguyên Giáp, Hoàng Kế Viêm, Châu Thị Vĩnh Tế and Ngô Thì Sĩ – and cover the Sao Biển beach zone and two night outdoor beachfront bars at Holiday Beach Hotel and Danabeach.
Vũ said the zone would host community cultural exchanges, music performances, cuisine, shopping, folk games, a kid's zone and a night beach area.

Visitors could enjoy swimming and beach activities at night under the light system for the first time when visiting the city in summer vacations.
Earlier, the city designed An Thượng quarter in the district to cater to late night shopping and entertainment in five streets for pedestrians – An Thượng 1, An Thượng 2, An Thượng 3, An Thượng 4 and Trần Bạch Đằng.
