Thousands of domestic and international tourists and local residents filled a newly opened ‘walking street’ on Phu Quoc Island, off the southern Vietnamese province of Kien Giang, on its Christmas Eve opening on Sunday.

The 200-meter pathway, named Sonasea Shopping Center, is located at the center of a group of deluxe resorts in the Nam Bai Truong area, to the south of Vietnam’s biggest island.

The venue operator, CEO Group, inaugurated the walking street with a giant Christmas tree, standing 25 meters high in the shape of a queen conch.
