According to the authorities, after 3 years of operation, the pedestrian streets have proved popular, become a tourism destination and a highlight of the city's cultural activities.

However, there are some remaining shortcomings such as illegal street vendors, inappropriate parking space...

The Hanoi Municipal People's Committee has asked Hoan Kiem District to further study on ways of improving management of pedestrian streets including maintenance of trees, lawn and flowers, lighting systems, vending machines and water purifiers...

In addition, Hoan Kiem District People's Committee will complete the plan to expand the pedestrian zone to connect the Old Quarter’s southern areas with Hoan Kiem Lake's northern areas to prevent overcrowding and combine these areas into one mutual complementary area.

The municipal Department of Transport was asked to consider closing streets around the pedestrian zone of Hoan Kiem Lake for traffic in one month in a move to study a long-term and overall solution for managing vehicles entering Hanoi’s downtown.
