October 14 was the first day when many business services, public passenger transport, and entertainment in Hanoi were allowed to reopen. Despite raining, Hanoians still did exercises many parks and flower gardens in the capital city.
Food and coffee shops are the most crowded venues. They have been allowed to reopen for more than two weeks, but until now these venues are really crowded when they are allowed to serve on-site dining.
