Since the establishment and put into operation two pedestrian streets: Nguyen Hue and Bui Vien (District 1, Ho Chi Minh City) have become attractive entertainment and entertainment spots every weekend, especially on holidays and New Year not only for the people of the city but also attracting a lot of domestic and foreign tourists.
Especially Bui Vien walking street because this is the street where many foreign tourists come to visit Ho Chi Minh City.
It can be said that the two pedestrian streets of Nguyen Hue and the West Bui Vien quarter have become cultural destinations and their own “brands”, contributing to the overall development of the city.
However, observing at two pedestrian streets, especially in the West Bui Vien quarter in the past time, has also generated many consequences, even causing insecurity and insecurity.
The situation of many street vendors, dozens of shops, especially pubs occupying the street for business and trade makes the pedestrian street seem “tense” every weekend, especially on holidays and often causes insecurity and disorder. Said to be a pedestrian street, but there was no place for pedestrians to go. The city of walking street has been more or less “degenerated”.
More dangerously, in the West Bui Vien neighborhood in the past time, there were also many “rogue” elements and there were continuously dozens of fights, even fights on the street when conflicts arose in pubs. Even the pedestrian street has become a place where “beautiful men and women” meet to resolve conflicts.
The image of young people holding chairs, sticks, or holding knives, knives, machetes, etc., slashing each other wildly, causing riots in Bui Vien pedestrian street recently made many people witness in horror, a feeling of extreme insecurity.
Previously, in order to restore order at Nguyen Hue pedestrian street and Bui Vien West street, the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City also assigned the People’s Committee of District 1 to correct the maintenance of urban order, environmental sanitation, and stop street vendors around the Monument Park area.
For Bui Vien pedestrian street, District 1 People’s Committee is assigned to organize civilized and polite activities here. At the same time, strengthen security and order, improve the quality of cultural activities, especially street activities to form a characteristic, serving domestic and foreign tourists when visiting and participating in activities on the pedestrian street.
In addition, resolutely deal with overtime business that causes noise and trade in the street as well as resolutely handle the business of shisha and “smiling balls” that affect tourism activities on the street and the health of young people in Ho Chi Minh City.
In order for pedestrian streets to become the unique feature of the city and a destination for cultural activities, a safe destination for people, it is time for the People’s Committee of District 1 as well as the functional forces to reorganize business activities in these streets.
At the same time, functional forces need to regularly check and patrol to quickly handle and suppress extremists and disrupt public order; Publicizing the hotline number of the handling force, quick response at these pedestrian streets is also one of the suggestions in the completion process, in order to somewhat stabilize order and safety here.
