The railway section that runs across a residential area on Phung Hung Street in Hanoi has attracted many visitors to the train and boosted the cafe business around there.
Increasing numbers of people have come to see the train in the past years along with the bloom of cafe bars. The section is especially crowded when the train is about to arrive. Visitors sip drinks on the railway side or on the second floor of cafes while waiting for the train.
Before the train arrives, the cafe owners warn the tourists and clean up the chairs and tables on the track. Some people have tried to touch the carriages. Despite the dangers, this is still a very popular destination.
Due to blooming businesses, some new cafes are being built right next to the track.
