Every year, during Tet season, a street is turned into a book street. Before, it was Mac Thi Buoi but for a couple of years now, it’s Nguyen Van Binh. This time, it took a month’s work to transform the whole street to a beautiful book street.
No more makeshift tents. This looks like it’s here to stay. And I hope it does.
Several bookshops have opened their own stall selling Vietnamese books.
Even PNC has their own stall.
And brought along it’s Book Cafe!
There also is another cafe —
It would have been great though if English books were sold but I haven’t seen any.
In the middle were some stalls where old books were being sold.
This is a real interesting initiative to engage the people to read.
And best of all, Vietnamese books are real affordable.
Drop by book street! It’s just between Kumho and Notre Dame Cathedral in District 1.
