Thousands of people watch the New Year’s countdown program in HCMC’s Nguyen Hue Street. From 7 p.m., vehicles have been pouring towards downtown areas, causing multiple streets like Dong Khoi, Le Thanh Ton or Ly Tu Trong to be congested. Authorities have had to use barriers to prevent motorbikes from getting through, allowing only pedestrians to enter the area where the countdown program would take place. Dozens of police officers were dispatched to maintain order.

Quynh Nhu, 35, said the New Year’s atmosphere has dulled a bit more than previous years. “The pandemic’s still here, so I also have to limit entertainment activities. After 10 p.m. I would go home and watch the countdown on the TV,” she said.
