Phase 1 (2021 - 2023) will survey, select and exploit available night-time economic areas and services on the principle of ensuring connected traffic, beauty, order and environmental sanitation, minimizing the impact on people's lives and activities. Products and services for night-time economic development include: cultural and entertainment services, eating, shopping, night sightseeing, etc. These services are specified by activities such as entertainment, sea sports, night streets, pedestrian streets, shows, bars, discos, food streets, seafood markets, riverside pubs and coastal culinary space. In addition, this project also aims to form night markets with typical regional identities, organize sightseeing services at cultural and historical sites, major tourist areas... The project determines that, in phase 1, mechanisms and policies to encourage the development of the night economy must be built; regulations on management, investment, exploitation, business and services for the development of the night economy need to be applied.
 
Phase 2 (2024 - 2030) will focus on completing the orientation and model of night economic development of the province, calling for investment and implementation of projects for night-time economy development, including building a number of separate amusement and entertainment complexes separating from large-scale residential areas.
