Next week: Are you happy with the plan to lift Hà Nội’s midnight curfew?
Hà Nội authorities plan to relax the ban on businesses, especially late-night bars and pubs, allowing them to stay open after midnight. The move aims to let tourists have more fun at night in the capital city.
This is good news for nightlife lovers who usually complain that they have nothing to do other than drink beer on sidewalks.
The decision has been welcomed by many young people, both foreigners and locals. However, some say that lifting the curfew might cause negative impacts, such as expanding unhealthy entertainment activities if they are not tightly controlled.
What do you think about the city’s decision? Are you happy with it?
Do you think that parents of teenagers will be opposed to it?
What measures has your country applied to keep nightlife under control?
