The project for a pedestrian path along the northern bank of the Perfume River commenced last November and is expected to complete this April.

The path, made of granite, would span 2.9 kilometers and would be 4.5 meters wide. The total investment cost for the project is over VND90 billion ($3.9 million), with the Management Board of Investment and Construction Projects in Hue the main investor.
