Hanoi’s first Book Street opens

The 19/12 street in Hoan Kiem district has become Hanoi's first book street from Monday.

The Hanoi Book Street includes 16 stalls and a small square for workshops and exchange activities. There are 2 public information stations on both ends of the street where visitors can search information about Hanoi's history, culture, and tourism. Free wifi is also available. Doctor Nguyen Manh Hung, General Director of Thai Ha Book Company, said: I was one of the first persons to come up with the idea of establishing a book street in Hanoi. The Hanoi Book Street is one of the largest and most beautiful that I have ever seen. I think it's necessary to open 4 book streets, just like Hanoi's 4 gates: North, South, East, and West. We intend to submit a dossier to the city for a second book street in Cau Giay district.
