Located along sections of Mai Hac De and Ly Nam De streets in Da Nang’s Son Tra District, the Son Tra Night Market was officially opened to the public on Sunday evening. It daily operates from 6.00pm until midnight, and admission is free for all visitors.
The new night market features a total of 152 stalls selling food and drinks, souvenirs, fashionable clothes, bags, footwear, specialities, dried seafood, books, pictures and other commodities.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Chairwoman of the Son Tra District People’s Committee, Mrs Tran Thi Thanh Tam, remarked that the purpose of the Son Tra Night Market was to to create a combined tourist and shopping space in the inner city, allowing visitors to comfortably shop, enjoy entertainment services and explore local cultural characteristics. This would help the city deal with the current lack of its own special tourism products.
She took the opportunity to ask the DHTC Da Nang Co Ltd to ensure the efficiency of their management, as well as small traders to sell qualified goods at reasonable prices and show their friendly attitude and behaviour towards shoppers. The purpose was to ensure the professional and effective operation of the new night market in order to develop it into an attractive destination for visitors at home and abroad.
She also hoped that the local residents would join efforts with the local authorities to build famous brand name for the market in the district, and in the city as a whole.
In the 2nd phase of the Son Tra Night Market project associated with a pedestrian space, a pedestrian area and more 300 stands are expected to be opened soon.
