Hanoi authorities have drafted regulations demanding individuals and organizations have appropriate dressing and behaviors and not use impolite language when taking part in activities at the Hoan Kiem promenade.

The capital city’s government is collecting public opinions on such tentative regulations on administrative management over the Hoan Kiem Lake and surrounding areas.

According to the draft regulations, people taking part in activities in the area are asked to keep cultivated manners, wear appropriate outfits, and not to use rude and impolite words.

The provisional rules also seek to ban vehicles from parking on sidewalks and streets or at any other public locations. Vehicles would not be allowed to park at gateways to the promenade, either.

Further, people would not be permitted to walk their pets or bring cattle and poultry to the area, step on grass and benches, and damage the greenery space.

Street vending or shoe polishing services would also be banned to prevent disturbances to tourists.

All street performances or sport activities without approval would be prohibited, especially those with speakers or devices causing noise.

Individuals and organizations have to seek official approval from relevant authorities to bring sound devices to the area, according to the draft fiat.

When a permit is not required, show organizers must report performance contents to the city’s Department of Culture and Sports at least five working days prior to showtime.
