Hue Walking Street is located close to the Perfume River. More specifically, it lies in the middle of Hue City between these 3 major streets which are: Pham Ngu Lao, Vo Thi Sau, and Chu Van An. These 3 streets are considered to be streets for foreigners in Hue City. Hue Walking Street is 1-kilometer-long and scheduled to open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 6:00 pm to 2:00 am the next day. During these 3 nights, please keep in mind that vehicles are not allowed to enter, so if you want to go there by cab, they will drop you off somewhere outside that near the walking street but not inside it. If you want to rent a bike to go there, you have to put it in a nearby parking area.
