Bui Vien walking street no longer has pedestrian path

The walking street of Bui Vien (Pham Ngu Lao Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City) has been put into operation since August 2017, and become a popular entertainment destination for foreigners and young people at weekends. However, unfortunately, through 8 months of operation, Bui Vien walking street has not yet run in line with the regulation, it is still quite messy.
