The People's Committee of District 3 has just outlined an operation plan for the Turtle Lake pedestrian street at the International Square Roundabout.

Turtle Lake is at the intersection of Pham Ngoc Thach, Tran Cao Van, and Vo Van Tan streets, where several restaurants, bars, and cafes are concentrated, making it a busy destination from morning until night. This lake has a 34 m high main tower and a large octagonal fountain with 4 spiral walkways. This is a famous tourist destination in Ho Chi Minh City.

Accordingly, District 3 will open a pedestrian street every Saturday and Sunday evening from January 8. The operating time of this street is from 18:00 p.m. to 22:00 p.m. This is expected to develop the area into a public cultural space that serves the entertainment needs and develop the city's night economy.
