Khanh Hoa tends to night-time economic development

Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa is a major tourist center but the night-time economy is not much. There are many suggestions that it is necessary to promote night-time economic development, but to do this, it is necessary to have a comprehensive planning and the coordination between the government, businesses and local people.
 
According to economic experts, night-time economy is service activities from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., including cuisine, art, music, entertainment programs, festivals, events and tourist spots at night. Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa has exploited the night economy for a long time. Before the Covid-19 epidemic, Nha Trang had a vibrant town with many restaurants, bars serving tourists at night. In recent years, the road from Xom Bong bridge to Tran Phu bridge have been busy at night with a lot of restaurants... However, the way to exploit the night economy in Nha Trang still has a lot of potentials.
 
According to Prof. Dr. Tran Dinh Thien - former Director of the Vietnam Economic Institute, Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa has many favorable conditions for developing the night economy and it is necessary to promote the exploitation of the night economy. The night time is the good time that force customers to spend money. Besides, the night economy is also an opportunity to promote the image of local culture to tourists.
 
Many businesses also believe that in order to develop into an international tourist center, it is necessary to promote the exploitation of the night economy to increase the attractiveness for tourism of Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa.

According to experts, for the development of night-time economy, it is necessary to involve local authorities, businesses, social organizations and the people, aiming to build a synchronous, diverse, harmonious night-time economy. In which, the local government plays the role of orientation and synchronized planning of space and public utility system. The rest will participate in the formation of cultural, artistic and culinary activities aiming at visitors.
 
One of the most current difficulties is finding a place to build a centralized entertainment area to promote the exploitation of the night economy. 
 
At the 11th meeting of the Provincial People's Council at the end of July, Nguyen Tan Tuan - Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee, said that there are currently some investors proposing to build amusement spots along Cai River in Nha Trang but it’s still necessary to do more researches about it.  Leaders of Khanh Hoa Province are very interested in the development of the night-time economy, but in order to do this, it is necessary to have a well-done plan, ensuring the harmony of interests but not causing disturbance to people's lives.
