Published on Feb 8, 2012
The Vietnamese city of Hoi An has banned vehicles from its historic center. The UNESCO-listed area of Hoi An has now been almost entirely pedestrianized in an effort to preserve the city’s buildings. “Due attention should be paid to every daily activity in order to prevent the town’s architecture being damaged, especially the areas around the Japanese Bridge, which is the symbol of Hoi An,” DTI News reported Le Van Giang, Chairman of Hoi An City People’s Committee, as saying. All motorised vehicles will be banned from entering the old city from 4.30-9pm every day, and between 8-11am and 2-4pm, six days a week.
