Who looked in the last few years on Social-Media-platform-formers such as Instagram based on motifs from Vietnam, is likely to be met many spectacular photos and Videos of the so-called "Train Street" in the capital city of Hanoi. The 1902 commissioned railway line runs right through a residential area – the distance between the rails and the walls of the building may be only 1.5 meters.
Among travelers has developed the "Train Street", therefore to the photo-Hotspot par excellence. The tourists were in the immediate vicinity of the tracks, always with the hope that a great photo of the approaching train shoot. But that is over now.

After the growing tourist has led to rise the last several times, almost accidents, have decided the Vietnamese authorities to increase the security. Therefore, the access to the tracks of the famous railway corridor in the center of the Vietnamese city has been locked in the short hand.
The displeasure over the new rules is great – both for the holders of small catering establishments, as well as the tourists. The residents had tried in recent years to take advantage of the tourist rush and established Bars, Cafés and small Restaurants along the railroad tracks. Now, many existences are threatened. "There was never a regrettable accident," said, for example, Le Tuan Anh, who runs a Café on the tracks, compared to the "Guardian". "In comparison to the traffic density in other Places in the city it is much safer here," he said in reference to Hanoi's chaotic, motorbike-ridden streets.
Just read Hanoi's train street is closing due to selfie-related near misses. This pic is from my visit this month. It got busy at times but there were some genuinely great family-run restaurants there. And now they've lost their custom, thanks to a handful of selfish selfie-takers pic.twitter.com/CjveaiukYX— Tamara Hinson (@TamaraHinson) 10. October 2019
the tourists hold little of the new security measures: "people from all over the world come to Hanoi, just to see the train pass by," said, for example, the British tourist Harriet Hayes. It was a shame that you'll now be rejected.
