Ba Dinh District People's Committee stated the entire Dao Ngoc-Ngu Xa area covering seven streets in Truc Bach Ward would be closed off from 7 p.m. to midnight to serve as a food zone every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

In the long run, the district will consider opening the food zone every day and banning vehicles from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Covering 4.5 hectares, Dao Ngoc-Ngu Xa area, or Truc Bach peninsula, is on Truc Bach Lake where late U.S. Senator John McCain was shot down and taken prisoner during the Vietnam War.

People from the peninsula to the surrounding areas have to travel through two small bridges at Tran Vu and Ngu Xa streets.

The Truc Bach Lake area, with its charming old-style houses in small alleys, is also home to many cafes and eateries favored by young and old alike. At night, locals and tourists typically flock here to enjoy grilled dishes and specialties like pho rolls.

In 2002, Hanoi opened its first food zone at Tong Duy Tan-Cam Chi area in Hoan Kiem District.
