Hoan Kiem district’s authorities said they will close and revoke the licences of all coffee shops lining the rail line by Saturday over safety concerns.
The Train Street has railway tracks running along Dien Bien Phu and Phung Hung streets in the heart of the Old Quarter with residential buildings barely feet away on either side.
The highly unusual sight fascinates both domestic and foreign tourists.
